my friend and i have been online and in the library looking for the right nutrition guide for tmau sufferers, but all we kept getting was foods high in choline, today she came across some scientific study for a choline deficient diet for tmau. she didnt save the website but she saved the whole research on .pdf acrobat reader but i cant post it here, i tried! it keeps jumbling all up cos its in tables. this is really helpful because i realized that when i eat something wrong it seriously affects my odor. also it states there that you could have a minimum choline intake of 100mg if you are on a choline deficient diet, because if you have no choline at all it would cause, liver damage, bone malfunction and tarded growth, including pyscological malunctions. below is a list of really low choline food and their measurements, you could make delicious dishes out of these!

"A full discussion of the treatment of trimethylaminuria
has been published elsewhere (36). These treatments include
restriction of choline intake, vitamin supplementation
with riboflavin and folate, restriction of dietary indoles
and glucosinolates, drug treatment with oral
Antibiotics , and the use of laxatives. The latter two treatments
are not feasible for long-term therapy. It is
likely that the FMO3 gene is polymorphic, and individuals
with different SNPs and heterozygous individuals
may present with milder forms of trimethylaminuria.
Therefore, different dietary levels of choline may be
appropriate, and our discussion of the treatment of
trimethylaminuria will be limited to choline-restricted
diets (36).
A low-choline diet that contains high-quality protein and
adequate amounts of breads, fruits, and vegetables can be
provided to individuals with trimethylaminuria. Acceptable/
palatable meal plans can be developed containing levels
of choline as low as 100 mg per day"

It is apparent that foods that are very high in choline,
including whole eggs, organ meats, cruciferous vegetables,legumes and legume products, fast foods, and some dairy
products, would need to be limited. For diets that are at the
lowest choline levels, one would include a variety of fruits
and vegetables. To meet adequate energy requirements, a
moderate amount of fats and oils and sweetened soft drinks
would be required.
