    Is it pizza? Cheesecake?

    Birthday cake french toast? birthday cake french toast

    Paula Deen's Ladies Brunch Burger? burger

    Those are my guesses for 99.9999% of folks. (smiley face)

    I bet it's my most absolute favourite: Eggs Benedict! *drools*

    I treat myself to those at least twice a month... every day if I could. Once when I lived in Victoria I took myself out five time in one week to five different places to see who had the best eggs benny, mmmmm.

    she said it was eggs for her, gluten for her husband...claimed they each lost 12-18 pounds when they quit just those foods!

    heck, be worth a try...requires a blood test...

    It's not just the pain meds that kill your appetite, but the healing that the body is trying to perform takes a tremendous amount of energy. That energy is taken from your body if you aren't eating up to the demands of your healing body. Energy = calories, any way you cut it.

    Jess--
    Which of her books talks about the particular food people have problems with. I checked on line and none of the ones there seem to mention it. It would be interesting to check this out. Thanks. Janet
