Subject: BS: Fat free meal ideas?
From: ragdall
Date: 25 Nov 12 - 10:02 PM

In preparation for a liver scan on Tuesday I need to eat an evening meal Monday, which has zero fat.

So far, in searching through my cupboards I've learned that tuna, rice, instant potatoes, green beans and canned peaches all have some fat in them. Mushrooms, Bouillon, scones, angel food cake, powdered milk, and blueberry spread have zero fat, but won't make a very healthy meal for a diabetic with blood pressure issues.

Do you have other ideas?

Thanks,
rags

Raw and cooked vegetables, except for broccoli and sweet corn, with non-fat sauces such as salsa. Fruits except for avocados, peaches and kiwi. Melon, berries, citrus, plums. Check labels for fat content -- there are non-fat muffins, for instance.

I don't think one meal will blow either your diabetes (unless your "brittle") or your blood pressure sky-high. Just watch your exchanges, if you do that, and your caloric intake.

Thanks, Rap.

I looked those up. The sites I've been able to find that list nutrients say that all fruits and vegetables contain small amounts of fat.

I just checked the flour bag. The flour contains fat. It looks as if my recipe for scones which have no fat or eggs in the ingredients isn't going to be fat free, either.

This dilemma cannot be unique to you. I would suggest a quick call to your medical team, who must have experienced it before, and see what they advise. Presumably if they needed you entirely unfed they would have said so.

I suspect that you may be taking "zero fat" rather more literally than it was meant, so that undressed green veg and most raw fruits would be acceptable, but your medics are the ones who can keep you straight.

If they cannot advise I would (personally) be considering whether I am with an appropriate medical team, late in the day though it may be.

Ragdall almost everything has at least trace amounts of fat however I found an American site giving advice about the scan. In general unless you are extremely uncontroled as a diabetic relax you will be fine just make sure you take your meds to the hospital with you.

liver scan advice

A bit of advice for the future whenever Dauvit had a word of a hospital apointment i used to phone them making sure they knew he was diabetic on insulin and asking them if there was anything we needed to do to keep him safe.

Randall, do your instruction actually say 'zero fat'? There are few foods that have zero fat in them and, here in the UK at least, the term 'fat-free' on food packaging generally means 'very low fat content', usually less than 1g/100g (I.e. 1%).

Rags, I have scans like that. They mean nearly fat free. Don't eat a bacon sandwich for supper followed by a bowl of ice cream, or a pork chop, etc. Have some vegetables--many have been suggested, and if you have a piece of boiled chicken breast, skin removed before boiling, it won't interfere with the scan. No sauces with the meal and no butter. Clear apple juice with that, tea or coffee without milk and yer home free.

Thank you all for your input. I appreciate you taking the time to locate and type out the information for me.

Megan, that link was very interesting. Thank you for looking it up and posting it here. The instructions are very different from the ones I was given. There was nothing in my instructions about the day prior, other than fat restrictions on the "evening meal". I hope I haven't missed part of the instructions because I've been eating normally so far today, and (fat free) milk is one of the things I do plan to consume with my supper.

Bruce, what you wrote makes sense, it goes along with what I thought. After checking online for ideas I assumed they must really mean very low fat/no extra fat, even though the written instructions from the gastroenterologist say "No fat".   

gnomad and Backwoodsman, when the hospital phoned me with the time I'm to be there I asked if I could eat "low fat" and was told, "No fat" means "No fat".

I was given a standard handout and wonder if the fat restriction is appropriate in my case? They ruled out the other liver problems in a previous CT scan. This is a six month followup for the small tumor they found then. Hopefully what I eat will work out okay for the scan. I wasn't given these instructions for other scans.

I'm sure I can survive without a "normal" supper tonight. It looks as if it will be no fat milk and angel food cake with blueberry spread. My diabetic snack before bed will be a repeat of supper.

Thanks again, everyone.

I'm home again after the scan. If anything terrible shows up, the Gastroenterologist will contact me. Otherwise, I expect to see my own doctor in about three weeks for routine diabetic care. I'll ask about the scan results then.

Thanks, everyone, for your help and good wishes.
