Last week I had an appointment with my endocrinologist. That’s a doc who takes care of bone density meds or at least the one I’m on. I was hoping that I could take a break from meds but sadly, that’s not the case.
I’ve done all I can do on my own, kicking up my exercise routine and calcium intake. I turned to Google. Maybe there was a diet that would help. Some foods may be etching away my frame.
Argh! What I found is the same for any medical or health condition. It’s the same diet for cardiac issues or a strep throat. Cancer or leprosy. Gout or the black plague.
Cut back on salt. Cut back on fats. Cut out processed foods (goodbye bacon, we’ve had a good run!). Eliminate all foods from the white food group (that’s the group that contains the tasty potato chips, ice cream, etc.) except cauliflower (which is at the bottom of my favorite list).
Increase foods from the bland and tasteless green food group. (No kale, you are not going in my shopping cart!) Maybe green apples would do. I”ll put a lime in my margarita!
Cut out caffeine. Cut back (or eliminate) red meat. Soda is bad for you because of the phosphoric acid. Don’t use artificial sweeteners. I can go on and on.
So far I can eat celery and carrots.I need an illness that requires copious amounts of ice cream and potato chips every week along with healthy doses of chocolate. It should be accompanied by a medication with the side effects of removing wrinkles.
