I would go to very great length to avoid any worm infections… Just a fat big NOPE.
And I eat what I want too. Mostly, of course there are limiting things here, I can’t even buy all the seafood I would gladly try (I mean the availability, not the price now).
It takes a lot of time and effort to lose most of the desire for the wrong things but eating whatever I want while eating the right things is just too tempting, I can’t accept it any other way very long term.
But health is my top priority anyway so if sacrifices must be made, I would do it. Hookworms go against health in my mind and no one could persuade me, I wouldn’t even be open-minded, worms, NOPE, I don’t even care, they are inherently wrong.
I find few things gross compared to what I hear from many people but parasites are firmly in that category. And the ones I can’t even just take out immediately? (Or the poor host can’t. I am so thankful I have hands to take out ticks, be it in me or one of the cats. Ginger is an avid collector of mini ones. I always felt a bit sorry for people who have points on their skin they can reach as well.) Even worse.
The fear of saturated fat is so weird to me and isn’t it in nearly everything tasty? Maybe I am biased.
And hookworms or not, a good diet IS vital, you won’t just get to eat anything with a worm and expect great things… I for one would want the best or something close if that is too much sacrifice so a diet change would be in order anyway. Even without diabetes as I hadn’t that and still changed my woe, quite drastically… Just because I felt well and healthy, I wanted to ensure I will stay so and maybe get extra benefits… So odd to me when people don’t think like this even when they badly need dietary changes.
