I was hoping that there might be an experience vegan women who would consider mentoring me into a lifestyle of healthy eating. I am 59 yr old master food preserver who has had a gastric bypass years ago and my diet mainly consists for animal and dairy protein. I need to eat approximately 65 -70 grams of protein per day.
I was given a set of twin girls to adopt 20 years ago. We have lived through and come out of the majority of the problems with fetal alcohol syndrome( We were never given a family health history}. When the girls were 18 they were diagnosed with Poly Cystic Kidney & Liver Disease. I now have been doing research on PKD and realize they need to be on an Alkalizing diet. NO meat,no dairy,limited beans, no nightshade vegetables,no wheat; grains,vegetables and food stuff I have never heard of. I am so overwhelmed I don't know where to start. This is not just a diet It will become a lifestyle. I am not sure at 59 I am up to it but I have no choice I want a long healthy life for my girls and family. If there is anyone up to holding a hand I need help!!!! Where do I start?
