Topic: Too Many Sweets!!
I don't know if this is nutrition or humor but the hardest thing for my husband has been to give up sugar! I buy a chocalate bar now and then and we have a soft serve ice cream occasionally but that is it. He was commenting how hungry he was for cookies the other day so on Friday he was on a road trip by himself and he OVER indulged his cravings like a kid in a candy store. He ate a whole box of heath toffee filled cookies, a baby ruth bar, a couple of other small choc. bars and a medium size bag of potato chips. He literally poisoned himself because on Sat he woke up sick to his stomach, weak and he even had a fever. He has not been sick like that for months and I totally blame it on the food- he did too. He said he learned a lesson and really does appreciate the good diet much more. I have been preaching how important it is to eat things that don't stress his liver and I think he gets it now. He's been eating extra spinach for punishment since!! HA! Mary
