People on dialysis should eat 8 - 10 ounces of high-protein foods each day.

Restricting salt, potassium, phosphorous, and other electrolytes

You will need to limit the amount of dairy foods that you eat. This includes milk, yogurt, and cheese. Some dairy foods are lower in phosphorous, including tub margarine, butter, cream cheese, heavy cream, dry cottage cheese, brie cheese, sherbet, and nondairy whipped toppings.

No colas.

White rice and bread instead of brown.

Egg whites and limited yolks. The yolk has the majority of phosphorous.

Fruits and vegetables contain only small amounts of phosphorous.

Do not eat too much of foods that contain a lot of water, such as soups, Jell-O, popsicles, ice cream, grapes, melons, lettuce, tomatoes, and celery.

Check all labels to see how much salt or sodium foods contain per serving.

Also, avoid foods that list salt near the beginning of the ingredients. Look for products with less than 100 mg of salt per serving.
