Does anyone else find themselves eating an unhealthy diet? I read all the time that sugar and butter are bad for you, but If I try to cut back on them I loose weight, and I never seem to be able to put it on again. I lost four stone after my op., but I was rather over weight, but now I'm under weight. I'm a vegetarian, I have been for forty years, and I wouldn't change that, but I find fruit and vegetables are bulky, and fill me very quickly, without many calories. Which leaves me with bread, biscuits and cake. I do eat beans and lentils, and pasta and rice but only in very small amounts, and they do sometimes cause dumping. I can't manage soup or health drinks, they always make me dump.
So I find myself guiltily enjoying hot buttered toast and chocolate. And humous, my one healthy food.
Do you think sugar and butter are bad in themselves, or because they make some people overweight?
