Wondered if anybody would be able to help me with this.

I've got to go into hospital on Friday and 2 days before (tomorrow) they have said that i am only to eat low residue foods.

All of this seems to be quite fattening.

Has anybody got any ideas of what i can eat, baring in mind i have a huge appetite and like to snack during the day normally on fruit!!! xx

thanks for that, what about snacking though?
I hate having to do this, as i've been back on track with this, the the day after all i can eat is clear soups and jelly, which is easy enough. x

So, basically the opposite of high-fibre foods. And Activia.

I think you're just going to be 'off-plan' - as they're aiming for the opposite to SW. If it'w what they need you to doso they can do their job at least it's for a good reason eh hun.

yeah i know huni, its just a nightmare, and the thought of basically starving for 2-3 days is going to drive me up the wall. xx

But you'll come out fit and well, ready to really appreciate being back on plan, in time to get everything ready for the christmas break.
I know it must be depressing to think about hospital AND being off plan when you've been working so hard on it. We'll have to be reall Pollyanna's and play the 'glad game' to find the positives eh!

i have crohns and have had to do a low residue diet for a while and just be careful of anything with 'hidden' fibre too. I ended up having cheese sandwiches on white bread and the only veg i could eat was mushrooms and no fruit it was not great. I ended up snacking on jelly lots

Thanks very much, was going to have macaroni cheese, but use the cheese sauce. So am i best just to snack on the jelly and nothing else? xx

tbh that is what i did it must be very very low fibre so if you can get hold psome spaghetti rings (not wholewheat) or tinned spag that would be good too

you'll have to be careful with the tinned stuff, as lots of them make a point of using wholemeal pasta nowadays. Sounds HARD!
