    Word. I'd eat McDonald's over hospital food any day. Just do it the Fat-Head way, and you'll be fine.

    ::facepalm:: seriously. I get bad migraines, some so bad that Zomig can't do a single thing for them. Since cutting grains by 80-90% and supplementing with magnesium when I remember, I've cut out my weekly migraine almost completely. I do get low grade headaches after eating grains or processed sugars, but I do that on so few occasions.

    Not having to deal with those is like taking off painful shackles.

    Amen to that. My husband suffers almost nightly headaches, often has to bolt from the dinner table to the bathroom, cramps, stomach aches, fatigue, joint pain that wakes him up at night ... the list goes on.

    I've given up suggesting food changes (they're met with hostility) so I make sure we're well stocked with aspirin, Pepto Bismol, Alka-Seltzer and Ben Gay. Makes perfect sense, right?

    Been there, he'll figure it out eventually. Until then I'm buying stock in Pepto.

    Oh, I don't know. I was pleasantly surprised by the hospital where I was waiting while my Dad was in surgery recently. (Big HMO) They had a nice salad bar and fruit and nuts and plain yogurt on offer at the cafeteria. It wasn't bad at all.

    Wow, you'd think with all that pain, he'd be happy to try going primal to get some relief. It's easy to get stuck in doing things a particular way, especially when most doctors would tell us to take the Pepto Bismol, aspirin, etc. before ever suggesting that we clean up our diet. Getting rid of my daily headaches and joint pain is why I was drawn to PB. I think it's the gluten that really gives my body trouble. Would your husband be willing to just try out a gluten-free diet for now?
    I'm retraining and strengthening my taste buds, one primal meal at a time.

    I recently started seeing this rugby player and the other day while we were waiting for a movie he said he had a tough training session that day and was pretty hungry. He also mentioned that he does the whole eat-every-3-hours thing. So I commented that he’s lucky that he’s able to make some really delicious meals for himself because he has plenty of time in the day (he doesn't work a 9-5, he plays rugby full time, but for far less than 8 hours a day). And he said, “No, all my meals are really boring. Everything delicious is bad for you.” I asked him what he meant and he went with the usual low fat blah blah blah, so I said that fats are actually really important. He said “Well yeah, but only "good" fats and those are not the ones that taste good.” (Which, side note: avocados are generally accepted, even in CW, as “good” and they are fucking delicious. But whatever.) I told him that actually science doesn't back that up, and he said he had years of trial and error the does back it up. I decided to drop it because I realized that this was really not a discussion/argument I wanted to have with him yet. (Only been on a few dates and he is in pretty insane shape already and my experience has shown me that people who are getting results with a routine aren’t likely to change it regardless of the science.)

    Then he ordered two hot dogs a Coke at the concession stand and laughed at me when I said I don’t drink soda.

    Face, I’d like you to meet my friend Palm.

    Not a chance. His whole approach to life is to seek out and embrace any and all things negative. If he got healthy and felt good there would be nothing to whine about 24/7 and then how could he mope around and feel sorry for himself? He's old, and old people are supposed to be tired & sick, right?

    Am I exaggerating? Not even a little bit. That's why I don't waste my time trying. I'm sure his depression is also food-related but he doesn't want that to go away either.

    Hmm, perhaps it makes all the difference in the world to be able to go down to the cafeteria. I've seen what's sent to my grandparents and parents when they were in recovery, and it is not food. It's beige and semi-solid to start and then as you progressed beige and solid. With a Jell-o cup on the side! My goal: avoid hospital visits as best I can.
