Publisher's Summary

Learn how to manage your kidney problems with the right diet.

The Renal Diet is based on helping people with their kidney infections, diseases, and other problems. A lot of us can become overwhelmed when there are limitations on our freedom to eat whatever we want. We need to balance out the pros and cons of each nutrient, value the health versus flavor factors, and much more. Knowledge is power, and when you know what to eat and what to avoid, and why (that’s probably what matters most), you’ll be safe, happier, more energetic, and perhaps you’ll even live longer.

In this guide, we’ll touch on topics such as:

  • Medical insights and information about kidney failure, diseases, stones, transplants, and tumors
  • Avoiding renal disease with proven methods
  • What the renal diet plan includes and excludes
  • The destructive effects of alcohol and clinical research backing up such claims
  • Finger-licking renal diet recipes that you can start cooking today

The Renal Diet can have a major impact on your health. If this is for you, I encourage you to begin listening immediately.

The theory of the kidney function is good, but ...

Great summary of kidney role and diseases. It is concise, and accurate. The narrator, Mr. Mark Booker, has a pleasant voice that is very easy to listen to, but he is a bit rushed as he reads. I like it when the reading is more conversational, and allows room for the listener to process the information as he/she listens. I recommend a more relaxed speed. Everything else is perfect about the narration.

Since this book is about diet, and offers numerous recipes, a PDF attachment would have made this book much more practical and helpful to those interested to apply it. How does one scan the audio-book to look up a recipe? I hope the author will add the PDF to this book.

Although Mr. Shelbey Andersen gives some good principles at the beginning, the recipes contradict those principles. For example, some of the ingredients and meats included in these recipes I would avoid completely (sugar, eggs, flower, sower cream, meat, mayonnaise, dairy products, vegetable oil, etc). I would refer him to read Dr. Fuhrman's books, "Eat to Live", "Eat for Health", etc. Even though Dr. Fuhrman's books are not focusing on the kidney health, specifically, they do ensure the general health of the body, and reversal of diabetes, heart disease, and many others health conditions. By adapting some of Dr. Fuhrman's nutritarian principles to the kidney, the kidney patient would benefit much more than by following the unhealthy recipes presented in this book.

With all do respect, I will attempt to return this book. I did not find the help that I was looking for in it.

Diet book

This book has very interesting info on kidney disease and recipes to prepare that are kidney friendly. I have another copy of this book but have a vacation home in another state; this copy is going there so I don't have to carry it with me each trip. disease

Thanks to author.

The first part of the book (finally) spelled out my goals. I've never seen them all in one place. I cannot wait to try the recipes. There are so many that would look good if this were a traditional cookbook. The salad dressings were especially welcome.

Good starter book

Had no idea where to start, but this book got good reviews and I decided to try it first. Very happy with it so far. I like the charts of foods with high, medium and low amounts of things like calcium, phosphorus, fiber and low protein foods. It was easy to eliminate some of the items that didn't serve my diet well and I was able to sketch out a basic weekly eating plan. The recipes were okay, considering half the food I liked and ate all the time had become verboten.
So, all in all, a pretty good book.
