In prep for this he (we) have been on a strict diet of eating nothing but fresh fruits, fresh vegetables and fresh meat, totally eliminating iodine from his body and other things like additives, preservatives, dyes and anything found in prepackaged foods. Eating out is absolutely prohibited because you can't be sure of what's in the food. He hasn't been able to drink milk which he loves, or eat beef because it contains red coloring, no dairy products or anything cured or pickled, no fish, no soy products, no eggs, no breads....you name it and he can't have it!
We've been on this diet for almost a week and it will continue until about four days into the isolation period. About the only safe foods for him to eat are fresh fruits & veggies steamed or raw with nothing added but olive oil, and we're starving here! No we really aren't, we're just eating VERY HEALTHY and I don't know how long I can stand eating this way. Unlike Jimmy, I love fresh fruits & veggies, but I also like everything else too!
