Oooooh, Aaaaawh, yummmmm.
I had jaw troubles once too and can relate. Enjoy your fruit!!

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

This is kinda off topic, but for many months I've only been able to eat baby food or pureed fruit (had jaw replacement surgery in June). Yesterday I was able to eat fresh fruit for the first time in months - had fresh peach, an orange and some strawberries - HEAVEN!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.

No, no, no! Dr. M is NOT saying fruit is bad for you. You gotta read the whole thing. Basically he is saying that fruit is very nutritious in its natural, whole state and that eating ANYTHING too much is not healthy. He is reminding us that fructose is in fruit and we need to be aware of that. He is also saying that drinking juice apart from the fruit should only be done 1 serving a day or less because with the juice you are getting all the sugar and none of the fiber--bad for us.

He is also saying that with so, so many people drinking soda and eating things with high fructose corn syrup and added fructose that to add to their diets even a small amount of fruit might cause a spike in their insulin resistance--BAD!

So, to sum up, if you are eating fresh, whole foods and staying away from phony foods that are commonly found all over your grocer's shelves then eating some whole, fresh fruit is a good thing--no problem.

Ya gotta get away from the manufactured, boxed, packaged, refined, over-processed phony foods and stick to foods that are as close to their natural origin as possible.

Hope that helps, Mike

PS: I forgot to add this:
Do you have insulin resistance Mike? If so then you need to be concerned about eating fruit or eating anything with HFCS or added fructose.
Here's what Dr. M. says:
How do you know if you have insulin resistance? If you have any of the following conditions it is a safe bet you have it:

Diabetes
High blood pressure
Overweight
High Cholesterol
Cancer

Go back and re-read the article to find out how you can know for sure if you have insulin resistance.
