I do believe that going off sweets will help you, not hurt you. It is a matter of self discipline. I love cakes, cookies, and candy. I do know that my kidneys act up if I have had too, many pieces of chocolate at Christmas time. The sweets are made, and they are rich. I usually can’t resist. I have learned the hard way to eat one piece, but not four, or five.
I believe being heavy is a hinderance to your kidneys. Try going off bread, sweets, fruit, and potatoes. This will help you lose weight, and you still have many things you can eat. You will lose weight slowly, and feel better if you go off these four things.
