I had to go on a no-fibre diet in preparation for my pre-radiation measurements and tattoos last Thursday. I now have more than a week until my 5 weekly stereotactic radiation sessions begin and I'm eating fibre like there's no tomorrow. My initial 7 days of no-fibre foods were, to say the least, tedious. I was actually straining my favourite pasta sauce to get the lumps out etc. Speaking of straining...
I have a couple of questions:
1. Why does it take a week of no fibre to prep rather than say, 4 or 5 days?
2. How have fellow travellers coped with a low fibre diet for weeks on end?
