'Normal' means NORMAL!? Really?

It started with the "normal" diet thing:

So, what you mean, Mr. Doctor, when you say I can "eat normally" is that I can eat what, exactly? Exactly how does someone who has been on one renal diet (first low protein pre-ESRD, and then high protein during ESRD) or another for more than half her life eat normally?!

Is there a list of foods I can have?

What? I can eat what I want? Is there someone who can tell me what I want... 'cause someone's been telling me what I wanted to eat for the last 15 years. Is there a list, possibly? WHERE IS MY DIETITIAN WHEN I NEED HER!
