  • I was told not to eat shark, swordfish, albacore tuna, yellowfin tuna, any unpasteurized milk product, hot dogs and lunchmeats that are not heated until steaming, fresh caught fish (here in hawaii some of them carry a pretty nasty bacteria), and to take it easy on caffeine. Also if you don't already do it, washing fresh produce is a must.

  • You are not supposed to eat lunch meat unless you heat it up to the point of steaming. You cannot eat potato salad, chicken salad, cole slaw, etc unless homemade. This is because store bought mayo is made with pasturized or cooked eggs and store bought or restaurant versions may be made with raw eggs. You also have to limit your fish intake to 6 oz per week. If you eat tuna it should be light tuna and no albacore.
