My wife, who is an RN, pretty much believes PB is probably right, she's just unsure that she can do without sugar forever, I think. I want her to read all the way through the book, though, and see Mark's views on the damage that grains can do and give me her take on it. She's about half convinced without even having read it.
If you are like me, after a while of keeping away from them, desserts and sweets will start to taste either too sweet, or seem lacking in flavor. I ate a piece of raisin cookie tonight and didn't think it was that good. I am planning probably on having a piece of pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving, if there is any, but am pretty convinced I won't be too thrilled with it, even though it's been a lifelong favorite.

On another note, I had a really upset tummy yesterday. Since I began the mass gain phase I have been adding more dairy products and it has been catching up to me to the point where I was laid out on the floor in the morning because it hurt so much. Adding cheese, milk, cream into the diet at larger intervals to get the calories has been ok until yesterday. Now I have ikky belly and feel crappy, and the toilet is getting a solid painting each time I visit the boy's room!
I plan to decrease the dairy, but will have to eat more of the solid stuff for the next 2.5 weeks...arrggghhh.
cheese and milk do that to me, but I have been okay eating large amounts of full fat greek yogurt.
A few months ago I was eating the yogurt and it seemed to be ok. Haven't been doing so lately but may try it. I also introduced cottage cheese into the mix so I don't know if it is the milk, cheese, cream or cottage cheese or a combination...will have to play with it.
I have made a decision...wow Karl made a decision!
Ok, for so much of my life I have fought to be 'right'. This always leads to stress and other issues, so I have decided to let it all go and learn from everyone/everything as a lesson. It is time for me to relax and enjoy life for what it is.
