The more my case of PD advances, the less I can comfortably consume of protein-rich food. I used to eat eggs at least 4 times a week now I have eggs in the fridge going past their expiration date. I miss those 3-egg omelets for breakfast. They say to time your meals for between doses of Sinemet or the meal will "block absorption" of the med. I've found a way around that, just drink beer with or after the meal if the muscles begin cog-wheeling. However, if the main component of a meal is protein-rich foods, just drinking beer won't acceptably calm my limbs. If I eat a 10-oz steak or a couple of flounder filet, I'm going to shake. PD has taken some joy out of mealtimes.
