NOT THE WHOLE CAN!

This weekend I was caught,

Not doing as I ought…

A whole can of chili

For a snack is silly,

It’s blood sugar level spike-wrought!

Tasting good and healthy are unequal,

Lessen portions in any sequel…

Servings per can

More than one I understand,

All at once affects diabetic people!

Changed to turkey and cheese,

Sandwich or two which pleased…

My palate–not the nurse–

Eating too much was worse,

Need to reign in my greedy “needs”.

FAT DOESN’T GO EASILY

Fat on adults stays put,

Did you really think that it would…

In the same boat

At LEAST we float,

But losing it is to the good!

In my home there’s less food money,

Other auto=pay’s are taking it, Honey…

As portions decrease

Fat-gaining will cease,

Feeling better helps the running.

My friend listen to me,

Your food increased lethargy…

Blood sugar depression

Causes regression,

Eat smarter and move–you’ll see!

SLIMMING DOWN

Less sugar bathing his brain,

Lowering levels for same…

Eating less too

Temporarily blue,

But sanity is maintained!

Smaller portions succeeding.

In decreased consumption needing…

No seconds consumed

Making more room

Near the steering wheel  when he drives!

PROPER NUTRITION

PROPER NUTRITION

He’s eating a garden salad,

His wife would think that valid…

The large pizza with cheese

Ate alone did please,

But it might turn his doctors quite pallid.

VERY CHIPPER!

VERY CHIPPER!

He found himself a provider

Of chips, a donation insider…

Who brings by bags

Of chips duly tagged,

Slightly out-of-date satisfiers!

He brings single-serving bags

That don’t make limits a drag…

For portion control,

But still make one full

Enough for desire to sag.

Enough for the two of them,

Both flavored and plainer items…

To keep them in snacks

Through this neighbor’s contacts,

Until he has more once again!

BIRTHDAY WEEKEND

BIRTHDAY WEEKEND

 

She’s ready for the ice cream and her blueberry pie,

Neither one is sugar-free, so we’ll keep an eye…

On how much the both of us have at that very sitting

Avoiding stumbling in desire while on the edge we’re treading!
