    I received this book, for free, in exchange for an honest review. This book starts off with a good high level overview of lifestyle changes that help kidney disease. Many of these are obvious (lower protein, good sleep, healthy exercise). On the other hand, a couple of suggestions (e.g. lower salt) were not obvious. This section was rather short and didn't go into sufficient detail to convince me that all of the suggestions were all correct. That being said, I only disagree with one point of hers I received this book, for free, in exchange for an honest review.

On the other hand, a couple of suggestions (e.g. lower salt) were not obvious. This section was rather short and didn't go into sufficient detail to convince me that all of the suggestions were all correct. That being said, I only disagree with one point of hers which is that lowering fat is good for those with kidney disease. She seems to be making this point on the associations between fat and cardiac disease. It isn't clear if this is the only reason why she suggests lowering fat and it also ignores evidence that fat/cholesterol might not be the problem. As a largely paleo eater I am biased, but I like to think I am open to opposing evidence. However, I need some evidence/reasoning before I take something to be true. This was the only point I disagreed on and I don't want to blow it out of proportion. I believe most readers would be put off by too much science talk and that this book contains the appropriate level of detail for a general audience. There are also some splendid tables containing levels of nutrients/macronutrients in common foods which is very useful. The layout of the book is well thought out and the book is well organized. The majority of the book is meal plans and recipes (mostly recipes). These recipes are healthy whether or not you have kidney disease and sound delicious. The recipes contain much less offensive ingredients (read sugar and flour) than most healthy cookbooks, but still more than I'd like.

    I haven't been diagnosed with renal problems, but I do have high blood pressure (if not on meds) which, according to this book, is one of the things that renal patients often have. There was a question as to whether I had renal issues last year while the heart issues were being diagnosed. I was glad to see that many of the recipes included do fall within my sodium guidelines for heart patients. I have not tried any yet, but I marked a good number of them to try because they sounded good.

I have not tried any yet, but I marked a good number of them to try because they sounded good. I did think the information included at the beginning of the book about renal disease was helpful in understanding what some of the numbers from my tests mean.

    The thing I like about this cookbook is that the recipes are easy and contain ingredients that you should have in your cabinets. Although it says that these recipes are for people with kidney disease I fully believe that anyone will enjoy them. The recipes start off with seasoning, sauces and condiments and ends with desserts. I have already marked several as a must try especially the soups. This is certainly a book that I will pull out over and over again.

    I tried the Egg Fried Rice recipe. It was yummy. I did add some rice vinegar to the recipe. Here is my link to my blog review. http://wp.me/s2E7xG-3697 I tried the Egg Fried Rice recipe.

    Renal diet plan and cookbook I'm excited to try some of the recipes. The author has written the book in detail that is easy to understand. The recipes have ingredients that can easily be found in the stores. I have stage3 kidney disease and wanted a book that was easily understood with easy recipes.

    The Renal Diet Plan and Cookbook is a very organized book full of useful, practical and delicious information. It has a nice recipe index, as well as an A-Z index if you are looking to find a specific ingredient. It starts off with basic information about kidneys and the benefits of this diet, without using complicated medical terms. The relationship of kidney issues / diet to other diseases, such as high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease, was something new that I learned and inspired me The Renal Diet Plan and Cookbook is a very organized book full of useful, practical and delicious information.

It starts off with basic information about kidneys and the benefits of this diet, without using complicated medical terms. The relationship of kidney issues / diet to other diseases, such as high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease, was something new that I learned and inspired me to try this diet / menu. There are some valuable tools included in this text, such as a recommended food calculator tool and how to read a Nutrition Fact Label. This diet seems to focus on the positive: "Eating is a ceremony worth focusing on, and can have a profound, lasting impact on how you feel and function."
