Here's some Body Science for you...

It's week #4 of being sick and stuck in bed! I'm also loaded with more lovely food restrictions. I'm doing some stuff to clean out my gallbladder, and I have to pretty much live on no fat for eight weeks.

Did you know that the gallbladder's function is to create bile to break down fat? So if you have a problem with your gallbladder, and you go to a naturalpathic chiropractor they will tell you that you have to eat one gram of fat per every 100 calories? Seriously, even most "lowfat" brands like "Lean Crusine" are at least 2 grams of fat per every 100 calories. It's sad.

Today I get to go to the next phase and drink OLIVE OIL and STRAIGHT LEMON JUICE. Yum! Actually, after having almost no fat for a week, I'm sorta looking forwards to the olive oil. Weird, huh? But I have several family members and friends who have done this whole thing successfully and it really works, so I have strong confidence in it.

Last night I read 3 volumes of the X-Men/Marvel Universe ONSLAUGHT storyline, watched the musical "The Fantasticks" and read some Karen Kingsbury. I'm surprised my dreams were fairly normal. I expected all sorts of craziness...

Sorry you're not feeling well!
My mother had her gullbladder taken out, so I know that trouble with said organ is not fun!
Get well soon.
