Nicci asks: What food myth have you bought into?


Sorry this is not on the above subject.

Nicci Micco,

I was wondering if you have a good Cardio-Diabetic-Reno diet, yes I have good genes from both sides, both had all three of these; and one had bone cancer when they died at 82. I was a daily runner until I was 39, when I had a coronary 4 by-pass surgery (no heart attack). I still ran 10 years after my heart surgery. Unfortunately since then I have had 7 stint placement in my veins. I am 60 now and about 2 years ago I entered into Stage 1 kidney failure, what both of my parents died from, two years I am still in stage 1. Most nutritionist I have ran into mainly stick with there textbooks. I still walk every other at least a 1/2 mile. I am still active in ministry and keep very active in that. Being on Social Security Disability, our money is limited for food and so we stick with the cheapest but still read labels. We (my wife and I who is a brittle diabetic) need a good healthy diet. My exercise is minimal because I take 240mg of Imdur everyday, so angina is a problem for me, but I am not a couch potato and never will be. The foods that you mentioned I love so that is good news. Maybe you have a site I can go to, to get some good sound information. You seem to teach rather than lecture, my kind of teaching.

Sincerely, and thank you
Rev. Kerry Conklin

it's been said that foods that have fat we need daily to help protect the lining of the brain. Is this true?

What about grapefruit? How does it figure into diet and weight loss? I love red grapefruit and eat a whole fruit at one sitting.

I am a vegan do you really want to know what I think? I like the comment on beef, people who care about their heart should avoid beef. No kidding sherlock! I do think people who don't care about their hearts deserve what they get whether it's heart disease, diabetes, etc.

people say chocolate gives pimples and people say chocolate prevents pimples and makes you get smoother skin..but i think it's different for everyone..because for me, it was good for removing pimples and smoother skin, but my friend starts to break out when she eats chocolate confused

there areno good or bad foods!!! There are good and bad food habits! That philosophy is harder to "swallow because the responsibility is on the eater not on the food. Foods are neutral- It is our use of the food that is good or bad. Wake Up!!
