Question from AudreyH: Horlicks (like Ovaltine) and malted milk contain sugar—is it too much for cancer patients?
Answers - Diana Dyer, M.S., R.D. Again, moderation, knowing that you consider it a special treat. Think of how much of that special treat you need to satisfy that craving of your soul. I'll use a personal example here — in Michigan, the month of March is Girl Scout cookie month. And life without Thin Mints is not worth living! But I no longer eat the whole box. One or two is really plenty to satisfy my soul, and I savor them and truly enjoy them. Then I don't feel bad about throwing the rest of the box away. The Girl Scouts have my money, so I feel like it's a win/win situation for everyone!
