Doing a sacrifice for a love one is not easy

Yes, the hardest part of our life, doing some sacrifices for our love ones. Do you remember on my previous post that I sacrifice sometimes of my cravings on food? I'm still doing that because of some restrictions of foods to my husband and my son, good that my son has little restrictions compared to my husband. He can't eat oily foods or fatty foods, low salt, no sugar and many more. So, what I did, I only prepare fiber foods such as veggies, no oil added when preparing and low salt for us. But when I came to my parents house, I eat foods which are prohibited to my husband. You know friends, I shade off 10 pounds now from the last time I weigh, that is due to low salt and no oil or fatty foods taken. And this is the only good compliment I thought that I get from sacrificing with him. How about you, do you sacrifice something for your love ones? How do you take it?

I have always liked to be thin, so I have always sacrificed some kinds of food not to gain weight, but it's worth the sacrifice.

Why your son and husband being restricted to eat those foods? My husband has diabetes but he eats everything but in moderation. Well, he has his medication including insulin for his diabetes.

but with our age, we should already cut down on too much salt, too much fats, and too much sugar in our diets. it helps our bodies get healthy as well.

I was not able to read your previous - would you mind telling me why do you have food restrictions? Is it due to weight loss? My sacrifices for my family involve being away from them so I can help out in sending my siblings to school. Right now the two youngest ones are in college to be an Aircraft Engineer and a Teacher. Between me and my mom, I think we're doing just fine.

How did you prepare it? For us here, we just put some fish and lots of leaf of sayote. I thought shrimps has lots of uric, are you allowed to eat it?

@ida123 It doesn't bother her one bit. But then I remember her having uric acid herself, and took similar medication. her trick was to eat less even though she eats everything. but of course, she learned her lesson not to when one meal at a party caused her to have LBM.

That is very kind of you to only make and serve the foods your husband can eat so you are not eating all those fatty foods in front of him tempting him. Sounds like the healthier eating is paying off since you lost 10lbs.

That is a nice way of not letting them see of what we eat so that they will not be tempted to eat such food.
