I have been on warfarin for approximately 6 years. It eases my mind to know that it will help prevent another clot, however I seem to have moderate hair loss (when showering and combing my hair) and I bruise much easier. I monitor my INR weekly and still enjoy most of the foods I did before taking this medication. It is not about not eating things you like, just eating them in moderation.
