Sample Diet Plan
From the book “Grain Brain” by Dr. David Perlmutter
After surgery, the diet outlined earlier is followed for the 1st 4 weeks (clear liquids, full liquids, puree foods then soft diet). Starting on week 5 and onwards, we want you to follow a low carbohydrate diet.
Here is what a weeklong, low carbohydrate diet could look like (Remember this type diet starts only after weeks.)
You can use butter, organic extra-virgin olive oil, or coconut oil when you pan-fry foods. Avoid processed oils and cooking sprays unless the spray is made from organic olive oil.
