I wish I could tell you. some sites (most) say fruit is good while others specifically say melons or cantaloupe should be avoided.
That's the problem and some of the confusion I am having at this point. Doctor say 1 thing, nutritionist another and websites another. Guess I will just take my chances.
Stopped using salt. Uuuugh. I really miss that seasoning on food. Trying to get used to "Bland".
Doc was specific about NO Bean, No Pasta, No soy products, No rice, but maybe brown rice in moderation.
Thant's another thing. Serving sizes. I know toddlers who eat larger portions. Who decides these sizes (per packaging anyway), birds?
2-3 oz meat portions. That is utterly ridiculous. If 1 portion consists of 22g carbohydrates, then at least a 6 oz. portion will be all the carb intake for that meal I'm allowed. Then I have to wait for the next meal. And in the same breath they tell me don't starve yourself. Can I eat additional things which have no carbs with it and still be OK? So many questions.
I may just eat what I feel like (in line with approved foods) in portions I want and just not worry. If things get bad, then they get bad. I'll deal with those issues if they arise. Got everything in order personally.
But 1 thing is for sure, if I don't like the taste of something it will never be consumed again. I got my taste buds back after I quit smoking only now to find that everything I eat isn't worth tasting. I know I seem out of control, but it's been a short time since I was given my prognosis and ordered to change my entire existence. Not a happy camper yet.
I was happier when I was sick, didn't know it and ate what and when and as much as I wanted. I never should have seen that first doctor after getting my insurance.
Sorry, just another rant. Haven't found my rhythm yet. I know 1 day I will, but I have never been a patient person.
Thanks for listening (reading).
