I spend tons of time on the computer trying to figure out how much phosphorus is not only in all kinds of natural foods, but also how much of it will actually be used in my body vs going through. (I don’t buy things with any of the phosphorus/chemical additives) Any/all lists of vegies, legumes/beans, fruits, etc (no meat, or dairy)? I have Osteoporosis plus CKD (I work out every day unless too much back or foot pain), so any suggestions (including doctors who deal with that combination) greatly appreciated!!! Thanks, JS
Hi Julie! Thank you so much for your comment. Phosphorus can be so tricky! Typically, as long as you are avoiding phosphate additives in foods (these are mostly found in ultra-processed foods), then you don’t need to keep track of how much phosphorus you’re getting in a day from food. That is so time consuming and almost impossible because of the different absorption rates! I actually have a free meal plan guide/grocery list that includes lower sodium, phosphate additive free, and more plant based foods choices for CKD.
