I had my ablation last Wednesday and I’ve had no a fib or heart funny business or anything out of line. I am off of flecainide and only take a low-dose blood pressure medicine to keep my blood pressure down. I am only taking Eliquis at this point as well. My IEP is a hardliner when it comes to diet. He absolutely wants me on a full plant-based diet saying that if it doesn’t come from the ground or grow on a tree not to eat it. And he means it every time I leave the office he looks at me and says plant-based and then turns and walks away. He has been eating that way for 25 years. I asked one of his staff members what he eats for breakfast and they said vegetables. That is a hard one for me. I don’t like bread but I do like a little chicken no red meat and mostly vegetables. He firmly believes that anyone with a fib must completely stay away from all Animal fat. I was just wondering what your thoughts are I know that some people here are on a higher fat diet and low-carb. My EP says no pasta bread. End of story. I’m just wondering what all your thoughts are. Thanks!
