First, this is not for me.

Second, I understand the body needs fat to function. This is for a friend wth a specific medical problem who must be on a zero fat diet for the next month. In addition to no fats, he may not eat any foods with seeds in them. He was instructed to avoid bread. To make matters worse, he does not, and will not eat fish.

Here are the foods we have determined he CAN eat:
Lettuce and any other vegetables without seeds.
Fat free milk and yogurt
Egg whites
Pickles (although they have seeds, he is allowed to eat them, I don't know why)
Rice
1 oz of chicken breast per day
Some juices and soda
He is allowed 5g of fat per day only.
He has no calorie restriction.

So I throw this out to all you diet gurus out there. Any more ideas on what he might be able to eat, especially something with protein. I wish he would eat salmon, he will not. Again, zero fat.

Some of the Whey Protein Isolates have no fat. Is this a Gall Bladder Issue? Someone I worked with had his removed and was on a zero fat diet.

Thanks.

No, it's a cancer issue.

Fat Free Cottage Cheese
Fat Free Cheese in general
Fat Free Candies (skittles, smarties, taffy, etc)

Googled and this popped up

Isopure is a great protein supp.

There are tons of fat free cookies and pasteries in supermarkets. Sometimes a whole section is dedicated to fat free foods and another section for low carb/diabetic foods.

I didn't think of Isopure. That might be a good one.

Fat free cookies and things like that are still out because of the starch.

Thanks for the suggestions so far guys.

so no other restrictions besides the fat issue and seed issue? you also said something about a starch restriction as well? I was gonna recommend potatoes/sweet potatoes and even tofu (i know i know, but the friend needs protein and I personally like tofu).

sorry to hear about this Drew.

This stuff has zero fat and no flavoring or additives, so you can use it in some fat free recipes or whatever. Hope things turn out well for you. =\

I've mentioned sweet potatoes to him and hopefully he will eat them. I told him to add cinnamon and nutmeg (it's what I do) because he obviously can't have oil or butter. Not sure about the fat content of tofu, and pretty sure he wouldn't eat it.

Thanks I'll check it out. Everything on google comes up with why you shouldn't have a fat-free diet, which I already know.

And really, this is only an inconvenience for him. He is on the road to recovery and as long as the surgeries go well he will live a long life without cancer.

My dad had surgery and they caught it just in time, and it hasn't come back in many years... so far so good. I hope the surgeries do go well.

Tofu itself really doesn't have any flavor. Tofu is used in soups and whatnot and it absorbs the flavor of whatever you cook it in. So Tofu basically tastes like the stuff you cook with it.

Looks like it has a little fat.

Tofu is literally a blank canvas with regards to flavor, it seems to be the texture that lots of people dislike. Me being Korean might be a reason why i enjoy it, but who knows.

What about fruits? Apples? Melons?

Drew, give your friend my best, and when you put this diet in the context of cancer, it kind of gives you a new perspective on whats really important.
