I have not heard of the coumadin diet before you posed this question, and I thank you for it.

Coumadin's active ingredient is the same as rat poison. Coumadin's main job is to prevent clots that form inside the body. In order for the body to clot, the body needs vitamin K, without it we will bleed to death. Coumadin binds up the free vitamin K and renders it useless. Thus the body has a reduced capacity to clot.

The "Coumadin Diet" is a dangerous diet (as all fad diets are). It is meant to reduce or eliminate the amount of vitamin K. By taking such drastic action the body is not able to clot and any cut (even a paper cut) means you can bleed to death.

Do yourself a favor and don't engage in such fad diets. Eat a balanced diet and get your blood checked for coumadin's effectiveness. The good news is that there are new anticoagulants (blood thinners) that work much better than coumadin and are out on the market now.

Talk to your doctor before engaging in any diet change. Your life may depend on it!
