Red Meat and Gout - Why Not Just Give It Up?
Bruni is one of my favorite columnists. Here he shares his experience
of cutting back on red meat and alcohol because of his severe gout. He
cuts back, but does not eliminate. It amazes me how people who are
suffering debilitating illnesses because of the rich American diet
cannot just give it up. To me, good health is 1,000 time more important
that the "pleasure" of any food. Take a look at what he has to say.
Notice that in the article Frank shares an important insight. We can make our diets more healthy by substituting healthier foods for the 'evil' foods. We can do this without suffering. And, we can actually grow to enjoy the new healthier foods. What we learn to especially enjoy is lower body weight, better sleep, more energy, and overall better health.
