    Sounds like my poor dad. None of the above as well as anything else… potassium …a list of stuff

    That sucks like when my Dad had gout when I was twelve

    When I got gout, my HMO doc handed me a print out telling me to eat white bread—yes, WHITE bread—cookies, pastries, fruit juices and all kinds of starches and sugars. I was supposed to avoid anything with genuine nutritional value like the plague.

    I threw the list away, went home, and had some roast turkey with dressing. The gout attack faded of its own accord. I’d rather have a gout attack once every 2-3 years than diabetes.

    Sorry, Marcy—between the gun and the fork, the fork wins.

    I’ve been put on pretty much that same diet, only three weeks ago. I have been doing pretty well, but when I cheat a little, my body reacts. It kinds sucks to eat “right” I do have one morning cup of coffee with my comics time. And thank goodness chocolate isn’t on the list!

    OK, I’ll bite. Why the yeast exclusion? Is this the latest celebrity nutritionist fad diet?

    You may bite your nails. Just don’t swallow.

    When my dad was on dialysis, that was pretty much his diet. I think he was limited to one quart of liquid a day, but NO potassium, which included his favorite mashed potatoes, no oranges or tomatoes. Bless him, he stuck with it – eight years – to the end.

    Given the choices of that diet or death…

    I never heard of a diet THAT restrictive, and why do the nuts have to be raw?

    George Burns. Famous comedian; noted for his cigar smoking. Died at the age of 100 after falling in the bathtub.
    Florence Gryffith Joyner. Olympic athlete; considered to be the world’s fastest woman. Died at the age of 38 after suffering an epileptic seizure while she slept.
    Go on, doctors, keep telling me how I’ll live forever if I just give up everything I like. I think I’ll keep a few of my little indulgences and try to enjoy what time I’ve got on this rock.
