Patient Video - What foods and diets do you avoid for your FCS? What advice do you have for others?
Charles emphasizes that the number one thing to avoid if you have FCS is fat (no more than 10 grams of fat per day). He acknowledges that this can be very restrictive, but it is not impossible. Charles follows a plant-based diet with as little fat as possible and suggests using MCT oil for mixing and cooking vegetables. With the help of a dietitian, Charles has found a diet plan that allows him to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet with very minimal amounts of fat.
