10. Brown Rice
But how could brown rice be bad for your health! Surprised? Well, the truth is that brown rice is richer in nutrients than white rice. However, this makes them richer in potassium and phosphorus too. And by now, you should be aware of the fact that bad kidneys have major problems with these two.
You can fit brown rice into your renal diet only if all other protein-rich foods are left out. For those who like healthier foods but cannot consume brown rice, the good news is that cheaper, low-phosphorus substitutes like buckwheat and bulgur are available in the market.
