When good sense prevails you don’t eat breakfast cereal for a midnight snack (or any other time, as far as I’m concerned). My mother put me on to this interesting piece in her local paper about a woman who did just that – ate cereal as a bedtime snack. And paid the price.
Fortunately, there are more and more doctors out there who have embraced the low-carb diet, and so this woman’s story has a happy ending.
The wistful note she sounds at the end about how she really liked her corn flakes better than what she gets on the low-carb diet makes me think that those who have recovered from some form of narcotics addition probably have those same longings. But to give in is to take a big step backward. I hope this lady holds true.
