Food glorious food!

I decided I don't want to deal with kidney failure and die anytime soon, so I'm going to do all I can to prevent more cysts and keep my kidneys as healthy as possible.

So on it has some awesome lists of exactly what I should and should not eat, as well as some helpful recipes (thank goodness!)
I will be going on an "Alkaline Diet", which will be about 80% Alkaline and 20% Acid, neutral protein (0.6gms a day) and low sodium (1/8 tsp a day, or about 1200 mg), no sugar, plus 3 liters of water a day.
To sum it all up in a nutshell.. I'll be a major vegetarian and pretty much eat fruit and veggies all day long.. at least I'll get super fit right? haha

I can't have any of the following foods:

yeast (so no bread, unless it's made someway without yeast, and sugar, and wheat.)
dairy (although I can allow myself 1 oz. of cheese now and then if I really want.. that's the size of a dice)
anything acidic (other than lemons and pineapple, properties in them are super beneficial and outweigh the cons)
You can go here if you'd like to see more of what the list of good/bad foods are. Pretty fun! ;)
