reading a book on gout -
Friday, May 15, 2020
good morning - What a difference in DH! At first, he was all upset - when we discussed his options. So I told him to figure it out himself. He thought about it over night. Now he is cutting out most of the food he eats. I think that is extreme - I know he will re-think as he starts experiencing starvation. He goes through these extreme thoughts. I tell him moderation. I do know he rarely listens to me at first but usually comes around in the end. He can't drink beer now. he gave me the list of foods that he is cutting out- is long. But I said to him just because it says it in the book- it is not the gospel. I said why don't you practice moderation. I agree you eat too much. It might be good healthy food, but it is too much in portion size. He follows WW and their free foods get him in trouble. I see what he eats and the portion sizes - he loses weight but I would be two ton Tilly. I am going to let him figure it out. I know as you age you do not need to eat as much. He is now coming to that conclusion. He is going to do more vegetables. I told him - that sounds great. His diet is high in animal protein. I am just the opposite. I do not eat meat unless I travel. I have never liked the feel in my stomach from eating animal protein meal. I feel bloated. As we travel, whenever that is, I will drink coffee and eat whatever I chose but in moderation.
It will be very interesting how DH handles this change. I know he can do it. He will find that he will lose weight faster. I am glad that he decided to try the natural way first. have a good day!! DH is in a GREAT mood - TG!!!
