Question... **with another update**

**Updated Update**
It appears I am now a junkie with a habit to feed. Which I did today.



Will eating a pint of fresh blueberries in one sitting make me sick?

Updates at 10:00.


**Update**
It wouldn't let me update at 10:00. Stupid blogger. So, turns out you can totally eat a pint of fresh blueberries in one sitting and walk away unscathed. Now I'm working on two pints of fresh strawberries. For all/any of ye NOT in the U.S....a pint is a lot. Oh, and screw yer metric system.



20 keep(s) me blogging:

I think too much of a good thing is just right, but I think the blueberries have different ideas. Blueberries don't like being crowded so I think the real question is, "What end will the angry blueberries come out of?" I'm sure you'll keep us posted.

I dont know much about blueberries...but i know that too many cherries will make ME sick.

Not if you substitute the whipped cream topping with Kaopectate.

Last time I ate too many blueberries I got a cold sore.. but I wouldn't consider that getting sick. Eat something along with them, you'll be peachy.

...no fruity pun intended...

Sarah said...

No, but it will make you very regular. We have been eating blueberries like it's our job around here. Berry picking is fun...

I can tell you from experience that I have eaten various fruits in obscene amounts many many glorious times. No damage done.

And now I'm jealous.

Well you won't get Cancer, Alzheimer's Disease, a Stroke, urinary tract infections, they'll lowerer cholesterol and total blood lipid levels (helps if you have heard disease), good for blood pressure ... so, as your doctor, I recommend you stay far from them.

I don't know...I think you ought to offset it with a pint of kitkats. Just to be on the safe side.

Sarah said...

mmmm, kitkat

I read this yesterday and didn't comment...oh welp.
Seriously, when I first read this post I was eating a mix of blueberries, tart cherries, orange cranberries, and raspberries. After I read this entry, I glanced at my bag of dried fruit mix and said out loud "You're missing out", meaning that you were missing out on some dried fruit mix goodness. A coworker overheard me say this and was all like "Wait. What? What am I missing out on?" Instead of showing her your blog I simply said "yo mama". After that we somehow got to talkin' about pepto-bismol.

"Violet Beauregarde" from Willie Wonka comes to mind...

Keep this up and by the end of the week you'll turn into a beautiful butterfly. I read it in a book once.

Jill said...

Yum. They'd be even better with some heavy cream or ice cream on top. Assuming you have the stomach space. I do, of course, but I sometimes forget that everyone else isn't a blackbelt eater like me.

Kara said...

Violet! You're turning violet, Violet!

Ooompa, loompa doompady doo.

You're berry funny...

Laura said...

Snozzberry? Who's ever heard of a snozzberry?!

thethinker said...

Eww.. how can you eat so much fruit in one sitting?!

I could understand a pint of chocolate. Or maybe even a pint of gummy bears. But blueberries AND strawberries??

If you do get sick, i hope you learn your lesson.

froelica said...

I told ya so.

Kevin said...

Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, berries!
