Well, increased freedom, anyway.
Jane talked to my doctor yesterday, and given my weight loss to date and my improved cholesterol numbers my doctor is now allowing me to eat a wider range of foods. Apparently she hasn't generally had to deal with this issue before; relatively few patients stick to the diet she gives them for this long. Anyway, I'm still mostly off carbohydrates, which I've mostly gotten used to; but I can now add lean beef and pork, eggs, and the occasional bit of bacon or regular (as opposed to low-fat) cheese is OK too, so long as I don't overdo it. On the other hand, I need to keep eating the green leafies at every meal, which, again, I've mostly gotten used to.
So this is a very good thing. I intend to celebrate this evening by going to Pepe's and having their all-pork burrito with verde sauce, sans tortilla.Posted by Will Duquette at April 23, 2005 09:41 AM
So, was the burrito good?

I ended up having the Chile Verde instead, which is more or less pork in a green chile sauce; I figured it was easier to order that than to mess about with the flour tortilla. Alas, however, while it was good it wasn't the same; next time I'll get the burrito.
