I am sitting in the hospital room with my 58 year old mom who had a heart attack 2 days ago. She had a stent (sp?) put in and just got out of the ICU. My mom was not overweight and had no idea her arteries were clogged. I am scared to death for her. She is entrenched in CW. The people who are with me, namely my dad, and my mom are in the school of thought that what the doctors/nutritionists say is gold. The menu here has MARGARINE on it, along with many other disgusting things-- low fat this and that. My dad is still things anything low fat = healthy. Pretzels? Sure! Turkey sandwich? You can't get any healthier! I plan to give them copies of the PB and maybe they will watch Fathead with me. It's just.... this is a passion to me, but to them, it's not. Plus, I am scared to tell my mom to get healthier she should eat fat. That sounds absurd to tell a heart patient that. I have to get the point across that it's not just more fat, it's fat in place of carbohydrates. Has anyone been through this? What do I do? My head is spinning.
No announcement yet.
