    OK ... so Daddy is Orion .... you'd think we had not fed him in two weeks!! At least I'm not alone in this!!


    Really hoping we don't get to the stage where we have to lock Daddy up each meal time to give the other dogs a chance to eat in peace!!

    We just started making this for Frank because we have him on Fromm now, so don't feed as much and he acts like he is being starved all the time! He was starting to get crazy eyes whenever he thought we had food out! Anyway, we have been feeding him the stew for a week, adding about 1/2-1 cup in with his kibble and he LOVES it!!! And so far haven't noticed any excess gas and his poo is still firm, yay! I made sure to simmer it for over 3 hours just to be on the safe side of bulldog gas warfare!
    THANK YOU so much for posting this!!

    I am getting the ingredients today! My pet food store said there is a back order on Fromm and cant get it until Feb 14 and I ordered it 2 weekends ago. So frustrated!!! But I still have some left so figure I can feed less kibble food and add the stew as a filler!! I will keep you posted~

    @Libra926 Thanks for the Vegas stew recipe. Silva 's it so much! She has a cup in the AM and one at dinner then 1 cup of her Fromm kibble and her snacks. She has alittle bit of gas but are good! You saved me from having to change her food while I wait for her food shipment to get here!!

    you may even be able to cut her down more. When Vegas doesn't have stew..he get 1 cup twice daily...when he has stew he only get 1/2 cup twice daily.

    Very interesting! Chunk gets a cup of green beans and a tablespoon of pumpkin w/ each meal (twice a day) with his dry food. Ever since I switched him from the Royal Canin (which was 2 cups of food twice a day) he always seemed hungry and this took care of his hunger! He loooves it all - I just don't warm it up because he eats it the same either way. I can see his ribs too but my vet says he's the perfect weight and we should always see a waist! He's definitely more active at the lower weight too.

    I recall reading this was a human diet stew...in a different post.


    My only concern with this...is for dogs that would have low sugar drops...and possibly head tremors due to their sugar levels dropping...I would just like to mention this...in case ones try this and notice their dog's head would start to shake...that it maybe due to their sugar levels dropping. There is no nutritional value to cabbage...I also wonder about the sodium intake with using canned food...I give my bulldogs "frozen" green beans as suggested by my own vet due to sodium content in canned foods.

    @Libra926 I spoke to soon ... Daddy is now at the stage where we have to lock him up from the other dogs so that he doesn't steal their food!!

    No, libras vet recommended her to make this for Vegas so it wasnt a diet stew for people, although I am sure it would be a great one. lol

    Here's the post I read...that made me think it was meant for humans originally...

    Actually, it was a human recipe! It's a high fiber stew made to make you feel fuller, longer. It wouldn't work on me because I've never bought those ingredients before in my ENTIRE life. I'm not a fan of any of the stuff that goes into it. But, it worked for him. I was actually nervous that the weight loss had occurred due to another reason. I thought maybe he was sick. Really sick. But, blood tests came back good and it turns out that the diet worked. I often find myself looking at him thinking ......he is too skinny. But he isn't. He is so much more playful. He doesn't have a hard time jumping around and rolling around. His back leg was giving him problems before, but now it doesn't seem to hurt.
    I assumed if the vet had given it to him...then there would have been no reasons for the tests that was run due to weight loss. But that is where I got that "theory" of mine...sorry if I misunderstood. Big OOPS on my part.

    We have started using frozen green beans instead of canned. During the summer we grow our own tomatoes to use. And you can always choose the low sodium canned veggies. Also..for the low blood sugar, he is still getting some kibble. The stew is just a filler so they don't always think they are hungry.

    Being all everyday ingredients it would work for both people and dogs. Unfortunately we are in control of what we choose to eat so in my case this diet would NEVER work for me. hahaha
