Saying what she can't eat, what can she? I'm from the South. We're carnivores down here! I can't survive on lettuce. I'm not a rabbit! I work out as much as I can and watch what I eat (I do eat a lot of vegetables and fruits) but the scale keeps going up. I wonder if it's something glandular, and not everything I'm trying to do right.
