If you’ve ever wondered if an “avoid” really bothers you or not, keep reading.
This has happened in the past once before but that didn’t stop me from testing my liver one more time. You see, my wife has been complaining that when we go out to eat the food I choose always costs more because I “special order” to comply with ERFYT. I always counter with the fact that I only order water to drink which offsets the increased cost of my meals. Well last week I finally had enough of her complaining and decided to order a raspberry iced tea with my meal just to see if she would say anything. The tea tasted wonderful and went down easy….too easy…so easy I ordered a second. I of course drank the second raspberry tea all too easily too.
After our meal we did some driving around and in about 30 minutes I started getting some sharp liver pains. This lasted for about 20 minutes. This episode gave me a flashback to about 5 years ago when on a very hot day at work we were treated to Gatorade. I thought at the time I could “cheat” a little since I had been following ERFYT for so long. I drank 3 bottles of grape flavor Gatorade- and they tasted soooo good…but within about 30 minutes I started having sharp liver pains that lasted 20-30 minutes. Back then I realized the corn syrup in the Gatorade was causing me all this grief and I learned that once you have been following ERFYT for awhile, you can really discern when certain foods or beverages do not agree with you.
My little experiment didn’t quite go as expected but gave me even more conviction that Dr. D’Adamo is the man.
