Vitamin K and Coumandin
Vitamin K and Coumandin
1/2/13 10:49 AM
I've completed P90x and was in the middle of P90x2 when I was diagnosed with a DVT (blood clot). I will be on coumandin (blood thinner) for the rest of my life. Unfortunately, this has changed my eating habits as I am no longer able to eat veggies that are high in vitamin K (kale, spinach, broccoli, arugula, cauliflower, etc). The veggies that I am allowed to eat are higher in carbs and sugar. I followed the diet plan in P90x, with some minor tweaks and was very happy with it. Is there anyone out in P90x world that has dealt with this successfully? Any advice as to what veggies & serving amount would work or am I doomed to a lifetime of green beans, asparagus and squash. I miss my veggies!!

Well, I haven't dealt with it personally but it seems you'd want to avoid all the dark leafy greens and related things and work in roots like onions, beets and yams, as well as veggie "fruits" like eggplant and tomatos. I love my leafy greens, too, and empathize with your situation a lot, but better no broccoli than a stroke for sure.
