Barbara Intermill, On Nutrition: Too much of a good thing

‘I need to reschedule my appointment today,’ a pained voice informed my answering machine. ‘I’m not feeling so good … maybe I shouldn’t have eaten that whole bag of grapes.’
When I called this patient — who is working hard to replace fresh fruit for her usual candy bar snacks — she explained further.
‘I was playing on the computer and before I knew what was happening, the entire 2-pound bag of grapes was empty.’
I’ve been there … like when a large box of popcorn suddenly disappears during a good movie.
