Hi Janet! Thanks for writing. That's an interesting thought about the foods you mentioned. I hadn't thought about the meat, pizza and other hard to digest foods as contributing to an obstruction. I've read that several on the list have lost weight. I on the other hand keep gaining so maybe I'm eating the wrong things! I've tried to start an exercise program, but now that my toe is going to cause me to be couch bound for awhile, that will be starting over at square one too. Thanks for sharing your insight with me! Rosie
