      Carol,

      Anything containing fat is difficult for our livers to deal with. But I
      believe that most things on occasion can't cause too much damage. After
      all, we do need to have some enjoyment in our lives.

      Ice cream, butter, cheese, red meats, etc. all contain excessive amounts
      of fat. Doing chinese medicine, those foods are taboo to me. But, I do
      cheat on occasion. Veges, grains, fruit, fish and water get real boring
      (at least to me) after a while. But I do notice that when I cheat, I am
      sluggish for a few days while my liver deals with those fats.

      I've sorta set up a bonus day for myself...and it's always a Saturday
      because then I have Sunday to recover before returning to work. If there
      is something I've been craving and I've been eating healthy all week, on
      Saturday I'll fulfill that craving. It's been hard learning to
      discipline myself, but it's a matter of my life and that puts it in a
      different perspective.
