Health issues

Just out of curiousity...seems like everyone I've run into in the food biz has some sort of serious health issue.

What about hectic environment and ulcers?

Anyone?

    Mr. Xanax to the res-cue. (Sung to the tune of Black Oak Arkansas's "similar" tune.)

    I will need hernia surgery from too much lifting and yelling "get your dogs here".

    In general, hypertension and believe it or not, hemorrhoids from heavy lifting. Oh and let's not forget carpal tunnel, vericose veins, back problems and migraines. Fortunately I have mild hypertension and that's all.....that's enough!

    I'm a nut! Not sure if it's because I'm in it or because I'm in it.

    Back when I was in the business I was in pretty good shape so I had no problems. I was lucky I was young(er).
    In between the stress and the work and then the carrying-on after work, I'd have worn myself out at this point.

    Right now health concerns have induced me to give up drinking, smoking cigars and I'm on a low carb diet of about 2000 cal/day (that is, if I can find any food that I'm allowed with the gout).

    I've also had to get off my seat and get back into the gym (it's been almost two years since I set foot there even though I practically lived at the place for about half my adult life).

    As a classic Italian guy (picture the type you see in the movies) I'm constantly "eating on borrowed time".
    I would have made a great ancient Roman.(sigh)

    Sonny, switch to spaghetti.......remember what Sophia Loren said!

    Like my late, GREAT friend Julia Child always admonished, "Everything in moderation."

    In the long run, I think that I am like Wolverine from the X-Men. I have a mutant healing factor where cuts and burns heal quickly.

    I have had pains and problems at different phases of my career but most dissapear over time. I had a case of carpal tunnel that was so bad that I could not hold a sheet pan of dinner rolls and almost had to drop them.
    Back pains come and go even though I have always lifted things in a proper manner. My problem here is that I wish to emulate my late grandfather who was a very strong man in many ways, physically and personally. My solution to the back pain problem is to get a massage.
    I am due for hernia surgery soon. It may be due to work or when I take my bull-terrier for a walk on a leash and he sees a squirrel. I am not sure about the cause here....

    Some folks have mentioned hemmoroids, which I have attributed to a need for a better diet.
    My biggest problem is a runny nose. This is due to a bi-lateral fracture that occured at a job and makes for one great story. Ever since it happened my sense of smell has been less than stellar. I am currently working at a charcoal fired kitchen. I suspect that it is causing my recent bit of snottiness...and I am not talking about my attitude.

    That's good advice lleechef ... the older I get the more I respect how beneficial moderation is. Lord knows I'm *way* more moderate in my ways than when I was younger (over-eating, over-partying, over-training at the gym and roadwork, workaholism ...)

    A small serving of Low-Carb pasta has about 5 grams of net carbohydrate. That would make it do-able even in the very stringent initial phase of carb-dieting/breaking hyperinsulinemia ... as long as my other choices for the day are particularly solid.
    I shoot for 15 net carbs per day during this period, and that is the amount that is easily picked up as "ambient" (as it were) carbs eating other very-low-carb foods; so I am very careful.
    I must say, I tend to spend my carb allotment on vegetables when there are any to spare. But the low carb pasta and bread products are in, or near, the ballpark ... at least in moderation.
