    Question Diet ideas??

    Hi Bulldog Friends,
    This is my first post and day here as a member! Im so excited to let my google research go and turn to you guys for REAL answers!

    Currently Diesel is about 70lbs, he is 4 years old so not much over weight. Although he was 75lbs a month and a half ago. So we've lost!! Im trying to get him down about 65ish. The vet informed me about a green bean diet??? Im not sure how it works and if he is literally only suppose to eat only green beans in place of his meals?? Told me to do this for about a week or so and he should drop shead some pounds quickly.
    Is this okay for his digestive system??? I feel as if he might get constipated ??

    Has anybody tried this? Or have even heard of it??
    Maybe some
    other diet suggestions ???

    to the site. Basically you replace half of the kibble you would normally feed at meal times with the same amount of green beans.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Hi Courtney and welcome to EBN. Diesel is beautiful. You'll love it on this site, and will learn so much. Everyone is bully crazy, and always willing to answer your questions, give advice, or share their experiences. We treat each other like a big family, we share each others happiness and sadness, and are always willing to lend an ear. Looking forward to seeing more of you on here and of seeing pictures of Diesel. Todd has you covered regarding the green beans. The beans will fill up his tummy and make him feel full while you are reducing his kibble without adding calories.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    I make mini meatballs of 95% ground beef as lean as you can get it, I cook them in the microwave with a cup if fresh green beans, Benedict 💙 it I only give him 6 mini meat balls and I drain the juice to take the fat out. So fa 8 lbs lost post knee surgery 😊

    This sounds like something I would like to try as well..do you use cooked green beans or uncooked? We had steamed string beans for dinner on Tuesday and tried giving them as treats to my boys but they said no thanks..but like apples and sweet potatoes raw..well one of them will eat sweet potato raw..the other prefers cooked
