about 15 or so years ago, i worked with a guy who had a heart attack and was diabetic. he was maybe 50? his doctor prescribed exactly this, plus eliminating white starches. (sound familiar?) kicking the rice was hella hard for an asian, but within months his diabetes was firmly under control without meds and he had shed about 30 pounds easily.
funny this-- just today i decided to do this too! i only eat twice a day most days anyway, so stretching the window shouldn't be that tough. we shall see!
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
