Several months back I found I have a condition called gastroparesis!!! At that point I quit Sparks because the way I have to now eat is totally opposite of everything I learned. I cant have anything raw except bananas & melons, no nuts, no seeds of anykind or anything with seeds in it such as squash or cucumbers. The only cooked veggies I am allowed is green beans, asparagus & spinach. Nothing whole grain. Only white potatoes, white flour, white bread, white rice. Oh, I am allowed tomato sauce & cooked fruit such as apple sauce or canned fruit. This is a very difficult road ahead, but I wanted to come back for moral support!!! I need all the encouragement I can get!!!

    I'm so glad you're back at Spark. There's support here, really. There's even a gastro team, go figure. Surprised? This is Spark, don't be surprised that there's a team for whatever it is.

    Here's the link:

    In this comment window, the team link won't be active, so you will have to cut and paste the link into your browser navigation window. There's 79 people on the team. Jump in and be 80!

    Again, I am so glad you came back. You don't deserve to lose all this wonderful support just because you have a new condition.

    Wow, I've never heard of this. Do they have a group for this condition on Spark? That would be very helpful. I guess calories are really the issue so you will hopefully do fine with the food choices you do have.

    It doesn't matter that you have to be on a different diet than you followed before, this site gives you all the other great tools for tracking, and amazing people to support you in your new challenge. I am confined to a wheel chair with a crushed T-7 vertebrae after falling from a fire engine. It has been 19 years and it changed everything because all I have are my arms since I am paralyzed from the base of your bra down.

    My point is this site still is a great place to get all the things you really need, especially now. I am glad you are staying!
