When you have progressed quite a bit on the diet and are on your way towards recovery, you can try them. Chestnut flour is not legal.

However, if you buy dried chestnuts, soak them and cook them until soft. You can then use them for stuffing and other things. Rabbi Rosenbaum in Jerusalem who published my book in Hebrew was so particular that he had a full 3-4 pages of analysis on cooked, raw, roasted, etc. chestnuts. It is just common sense to realize that once you boil something which has some starch in it, it will become so water-soaked that the weight will be mostly water and the tiny bit of starch is diluted way down.

I was introduced to this diet 7 years ago. Began the diet with my physicians knowledge and was able to go prescription drug free within a year. The diet really works and the book not only gives the how to and recipes, it gives the scientific information to back up the evidence. I highly recommend this book/guide to all that suffer from intestinal disorders.
