In a younger man's clothes, I'd've bemoaned the loss of scallops.


Today, fresh fruit. Not likely to happen, but if some MD would tell me that since fruit contains fructose and could raise triglycerides .... well first I'd call him a quacko and even if I believed him, I'd cry a little, as I chomp my three daily apples, two pears (replaced by peaches and nectarines in summer), an orange, and bunch of grapes.

I'm pretty sure that the OP considered this to be a fun little exercise, not anything to be taken seriously. (Hence his answer of cake with rich frosting.)

For me, the food I would cry the most over would be pizza. It's the one item I could eat 7 days a week for breakfast (cold), lunch & dinner.

For me it would be pizza & iced tea.

I enjoy most kinds of pizzas: thin, thick, stuffed, pan, New York, Chicago, rolls, bites, pasta, etc.
If that ban was on all pizza & related foods, then I would be in trouble.

As for iced tea: iced tea, half & half (Lemon Aid/Iced Tea), Sweet Tea, etc.


I did give up eggs for 15 years when it looked like they may have been bothering me. But I introduced them back into my diet sparingly. For that same reason I gave up all soda over 6 years ago. I haven't missed it one bit.

I agree, pizza would be difficult. As it is, I've traded half my life to go to a place where real pizza is almost impossible to find. When I get back to NJ, one of the first meals I get is pizza.

My doctor doesn't have a clue so she wouldn't be able to tell me to stop eating anything.

But I have decided on my own that I have to give up Hershey's chocolate for the rest of my life. I think the brand could be addictive for me and is likely a way I consume too many calories though I eat pretty good. Other kinds of chocolate don't seem to make me want to eat the entire bag in the way anything Hershey's does.

They never tell me anything, Iím ahead of the curve. Doctors and nutrition. What a laugh.

Giving up Indian food (all those heavenly curries) would cause me great sorrow. I only manage to have Indian food every couple months, so it's not like I couldn't do it.

Scallops are worth bemoaning. As is halibut and lobster. ;-)

It is so nice to have a fun topic on such a special day. For me, I took it just the way you did and I needed a good feeling post, as one of our best friends went to the other world late yesterday.

Have to admit I would miss pizza but could live without it.

I knew it was happening because I ate ice cream just about every day. It was sad and depressing but I stopped eating ice cream. It was May, and summer was coming, and I stopped eating ice cream, do you hear? I went THE ENTIRE SUMMER with no ice cream, right down to Labor Day weekend when I went to my favorite little family-owned, homemade ice cream shop that was only a mile away and got one cup of it. Chocolate almond.

I did it, though. Lost 24 pounds in that six months (wasn't JUST ice cream, added in more salads and an exercise program) and brought both the blood sugar and cholesterol down to normal levels.)

I have some occasionally now, but not every day or even every week anymore.
My issue is adult onset food allergies. No more peanut butter, almonds, soy, coconut, pineapple, kiwi, etc. I can eat ice cream if I buy organic cream and make the ice cream myself, but usually I'm too lazy. What I really miss are peanut butter cups.
