I would imagine that a furries' digestive system, and therfore diets, would not be that much different to ours. While the exterior of the furry is very different to us, their upright stance and other anatomical features would have similar requirements to us.

Alcohol is actually bad for all things. But when you have a smaller animal, the same amount that you'd drink in one sitting is deadly to them. Size matters, you cannot drink an elephant under the table if you're a house cat.
Theobromine, Theophylline and caffeine are out, goodbye coffee, chocolate and tea. Those would all have to be re-made to exclude those products and find some other sort of eye-opener.
There's a lot... but one /big/ thing I've noticed is grapes/raisins. Birds do not like them, they are bad for dogs, bad for cats... it's like a fruit made for specific animals only. Possibly because we've modified it so much.
Onions... garlic... you got a whole world out there that you just shut down because you are now an intolerant animal. Humans are endurance kings! You would have to re-do spices, know what foods you need, how much of it, and what's your weak points. Your diet is going to have to go on overhaul!

To be fair, most humans hate raisins too...but one big thing I've noticed is grapes/raisins.
Your comment just got me thinking of all the animals that live on carrion (i.e. roadkill). Can you imagine that cuisine as a fast food restaurant alongside a motorway?you got a whole world out there that you just shut down because you are now an intolerant animal
