    Was told to cut out sugar, chocolate and sweets
    Next came the oats the rice and the wheat's
    Can't cope with oranges, or many other fruits
    Still trying desperately to find a food that suits
    Protein gets yer kidneys, fats clogs up yer heart
    Seems that every type of food is out to get some part
    Can't even drink much now and that's something I've missed
    Have to be the driver and watch me mates get ******
    Seems all that's left for me to eat is lettuce leaves and water
    So is it really any suprise I don't always do what I outta
    I can't face a curry without chappatti's too
    And what's the point if I can't have some tatties in my stew
    So if I cheat, sometimes do, an make myself unwell
    I'd like to bet that when I dieI won't be alone in hell :twisted:
    Any replies in verse please :lol:

    Oh what a simple verse that was
    Short and to the point
    I think you are a wily lass
    In coming here to stay
    You know that all the good folk here
    Will try and make your day
    They will offer strange alternatives
    Like Cauliflower Rice.......
    I think I would rather eat a plate
    of marinated mice !!!

    Ken :D

    I’ve done wi eating pasta,
    the tatties are o’r the side,
    sugar is oot the windi
    and rice I canna abide !!

    My levels they keep level,
    ma weight is droppin’ aff,
    I’m keepin ma feet in order
    to stop them dropping aff.

    And no, I’m no an angel
    I ha the odd bit sweet
    but only on occasion
    a wee bit trig and neat.
