I am so grateful to be pain and limp free NOTHING could induce me to at a simple carbs. I look at my former friends, pastry of all kinds and any chip or cracker, and I see the PAIN in my mind.
It's true, I've removed those carbs from the body but I do cheat when I'm out a bit...Like today, I may have a reuben sandwich. I'll see once I sit down and look at menu.
