    I hope this renal meal plan can help others out there get a grasp on this very complex renal diet, it took me a couple of years, to finally understand this very complex renal diet, and most importantly to stay as compliant with this diet as best i can. I do very well most of the time, but my weakness is truly cheese, in which i adore all kinds of cheeses and dishes cooked with cheese. I do try to limit the high phosphorus cheeses as much as possible. However, i do continue to make mac and cheese on occasion, one of my favorite dishes from my childhood, i have discovered making it with mozzarello, cream cheese and just a 1/4 cup of shredded cheddar, and also remembering to take my binders as prescribed, i do very well, with my phosphorus levels. I researched varies cheeses, and came up with this way of enjoying my favorite mac and cheese dish, without worry about Mr. Phosphorus, who is always lurking around the corner to devour us chronic kidney pts. (lol). I do share phosphorus and my copings with it, very deeply in my second book. - My Twenty Year Journey with PKD in the Dialysis World.
