Hey, sorry to interrupt… I just thought I would tell yall I know how yall feel. I used to sneak food a lot too… I really wish now that I hadn’t, because it’s really hard to see those foods that I’ve tried just sitting in the refridgerator begging to be eaten…very tempting…It is really hard having PKU sometimes,(especially when your friends and family are eating something you really wish you could at least try), but I have come to realize something: it doesn’t really matter what the food you eat tastes like, because after you eat it you’re not going to taste it any more! I think I just forget sometimes why I’m eating. I eat so that I won’t be hungry; so it doesn’t matter how what I am eating tastes, it helps to taste good, but I am just eating to keep my belly from growling… nMillie
