Bad News Betty..erhm..Eric
I went to see Dr. Eric Gunther today. I have added another irrational fear to my list: Snakes, Quicksand, and surgery. I don’t like the idea of living my life without an organ. The doctor told me he wants to take it out Tuesday,July 19th. I wish it was one of those things that there is no choice, you have to get it out. But no, this is an important decision I have to make. Mum is rooting for no surgery and I’ve started alternative research while everyone else is pushing me onto the operating table. I feel like everything I do lately has to be carefully planned and thought out, which is extremely pressuring. The stress buildup inside of me is overwhelming and I don’t know what to do to deal. I think I’m going to get the surgery. Has anyone here gotten their gallbladder out at a young age? Or even just at any time? I’m really looking for some guidance.
I’m on a low/non fat diet. Today I’ve eaten Cinnamon Simple Living w/ Rice milk for breakfast, an egg and reduced fat cheddar cheese on croissant and small iced coffee with sugar and skim milk from Dunkin Donuts, fresh cherries, Penne noodles with red sauce and Boca crumbles, and a strawberry salad. I’m feeling the Dunkin Donuts tonight and regret it. Vegetarian food suggestions anyone?
I started packing my boxes for Denmark this afteroon. 3 big boxes to be shipped over the ocean as well as saw how much I could fit in my suitcase. I am allowed one checked suit case and one carry on. Not much for a girl with a never ending closet. I gave away some clothing to an old friend and am collecting more to support a citizen with Cancer. I’ve been focusing on ME and MY problems lately, but it feels good to not be so selfish.
Well, thats my shpeal. Peace.

Honey Wheat Oatmeal Bread Machine Bread recipe – 173 calories
I love this bread. It is simple to put together with a bread machine, and tastes wonderful. I love the fact that it doesn’t have a lot of sugar and nodairy, yet it still turns out soft and chewy. I just ate two slices with butter and it was excellent!
Honey Wheat Oatmeal Bread recipe – 173 calories
1 1/4 cups water
1?3 cup honey
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon instant yeast (or one packet)
1 cup rolled oats
1 1/2 cups white bread flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1. Place the ingredients into the bread pan in the order suggested by your machine’s manufacturer.
2. Set the machine for the regular white bread cycle.
2. If you want a softer crust that’s easier to slice for sandwiches, then as soon as you take the bread out of the pan, put it right into a large plastic bag and close tightly. The hot bread will steam the crust and make it very soft.

“An updated review finds that a “modified-fat” diet, that replaces saturated fats with unsaturated fats, is more effective than a low-fat diet at reducing heart disease risk. A modified-fat diet, which incorporates unsaturated fats from foods like liquid vegetable oils, fish and nuts, may be easier to follow than a traditional low-fat diet. While reducing saturated fat consumption lowered the risk of cardiovascular disease, a Cochrane review found no proof that it reduced risk of death by cardiovascular causes.”—

Getting Fat on a Low-Fat Diet
If energy intake is greater than energy expenditure, an individual can become obese on a low-fat diet because all of their carbohydrate intake is being oxidized. This is due to dietary fat being stored as the body rapidly adjusts to oxidizing carbs and proteins for energy needs at the expense of fat oxidation.
