I'm fortunate. My must-have foods are fish, cooked tomato, and eggs. I do remember when eggs were the butt of medical ignorance, but I kept eating them.

Things like cake, candy, donuts................don't eat very often, but probably would go insane if I
had to never eat again. A close second, corn or potato chips.

Good grief, if a doctor told me to give up a certain food to save my life, I surely would. Nothing is worth dying for, like foods of certain types.

I have not had a piece of cake in years, except for bran muffins I keep to a desert type taste and today had a lovely piece of pumpkin pie...enjoyed it very much with my nice turkey dinner.

Foods are NOT my loves. I like more foods than others, but generally I can eat anything. Just about anyway.

And to say, I'd go insane etc, a little bit too dramatic as I read and absorb it all.

On cheese, I've gone off it totally for some months and time to do it again. Believe I'm indulging too much now and hence the morning mucus.

For me, it's cake with rich frosting. I have a piece of cake 365 days of the year, after dinner, and if my Dr. told me I couldn't eat cake anymore, I might have to call the Suicide Prevention Hotline!

Are you serious -- pc cake every day.

My doctor said "Don't eat anything fatty". I said "like burgers and bacon"? He said "No fatty, don't eat anything".

If my doctor told me that I would not listen to him/her. I like my fats and believe our body needs them.

Unless the food is creating life-threatening anaphylaxis I can't see any MD telling anyone they can never eat some food again. I can however see them saying to cut back on how MUCH of it you eat. That is manageable and realistic, so no, nothing would send me in to a crying binge or suicide. I'd adjust.

Yessirree! I make the most delicious frosting, Buttercream Frosting, and when it says to add a couple of tablespoons of milk to the frosting, I make it more addictive by adding 2 tablespoons of whipping cream instead. It's truly my heroin everyday! Pies just don't cut it for me!

Over the years, how many times have you read of some research study being negated by another research study. At one time drinking coffee was not the best for you, now it's good for you, to even help stave off dementia? What will be the next reversal?
