Any diet suggestions for Rodney? ;-)
They entered the mess hall and John held Rodney back for a moment.
"If we do this right, you may be slightly hungry at times but not starving," John said. "When you're really hungry, you should just eat, but if we try the 'lots of little meals' approach, that will be closest to your normal eating habits anyway."
"I do kind of graze," Rodney admitted.
"With your hypoglycemia, that's actually a good thing, as you've probably been told," John agreed. Not that he would admit to keeping an eye on Rodney's eating habits. "You just need to stop and think about what you're eating."
"Yeah, it's all easy at first and then there's an emergency and I've fallen off the diet and before I know it, I've put all the weight back on," Rodney said.
"Well, with the two of us working on it, maybe you won't forget," John offered. "He thought for a second. "And I might have an idea that might help. I'll tell you that later."
"That's what I was hoping for," Rodney admitted. "As long as it's not too much work."
"I'll put a moratorium on emergencies, if that will help," John grinned.
"That would help even more!" Rodney laughed. "Let me know how that works out for you."
Lunch was 'Pegasus goulash' and Rodney took a smaller portion than normal, filling his plate with vegetables and salad. John took extra fruit instead of desserts.
"Good start," John said. "Although the other thing you can do is drink more water during the day. And maybe a tad less coffee." He grinned at Rodney's look of horror. 'Yeah, I know. Just add a couple glasses of water here and there and you'll find you want less coffee."
"Oh, sure, make this no fun at all," Rodney groused but good naturedly. "Yeah, that's a good idea. The water, not the less coffee."
