DH - "I think I did OK with everything I'm supposed to be eating today."
Me - "Oh, that's good. What did you eat?"
DH - "I had the usual oatmeal cereal for breakfast with 1% milk, plus my coffee. For lunch I had a sirloin burger with bread, lettuce, tomato, cheese, and the usual condements. Meat is supposed to be OK, isn't it?"
Me - "Um, no. Per your doctor's list you're not supposed to be eating red meat right now. Just fish and chicken. No red meat, and that includes fast foods."
DH - "Really? I thought sirloin was OK?"
Me - "Look at your list. It says 'NO RED MEAT'. No cheating."
DH - "Oh. *sigh*"
Me - "Oh, and there's the stuff you put on the burger..."
DH - *Silence*
Me - "GAH!"
My husband had a physical last month. Everything was just about OK, but his cholesterol was high. You can't eat crap all the time and expect to have a stellar physical report. They also suggested that he lose some weight, 10 to 20 pounds. It doesn't matter what I say, I give free advice daily, but he has to hear the same words from someone with an MD after their name. I guess the Mrs. in front of my name doesn't count when it comes to health issues. Sheesh. I even lost 30 pounds 8 years ago and kept most of it off. I just might know a little something about eating right...
