Ice Cream (page 3)

Jerry RobersonTo marilyn swett

After having my two heart attacks and open heart surgery, I very seldom eat ice cream or sugar. Even with plenty of exercise eating sugar can kill you just like it did Jim Fixx the author of "The Complete Book of Running". I can still remember Mr Fixx talking on TV and radio how you could eat anything you wanted as long as you ran and exercised. He had a massive heart attack while running 15 miles at the age of 52. 

I also remember he ate nothing but pizza and ice cream for 3 months before a marathon run. After the marathon he had to have medical attention. He had the heart attack less than a year after this binge eating to prove his point that you could eat anything as long as you exercised. 

I now might eat a very small scoop of ice cream ever 3-4 months. I now eat 99.9% of only natural, unprocessed food. My snacks now consist of any kind of fruit or vegetable. When it is warm weather and I can get them, watermelon and cantaloupe  are my go to snacks. Sweet with natural sugar. Not only good, but good for you. So after a hard ride or any hard exercise I eat a big bowl of watermelon and cantaloupe.  Peaches, apples, grapes, blueberries, blackberries, pears, bananas, raisins, dates, and prunes make up my snacks when watermelon and cantaloupe aren't available.
