Yes I know I have had this epiphany before -- many times. At almost 41 it is something I have known my whole life. Yet even I -- in a pinch -- lose sight of reality. This time is no different. The pinch is from my clothes as they become tighter because I have gained back some of the 40 pounds I fought so hard to lose. I panicked, and decided to try a fad diet -- the 17-day diet. Seventeen days of virtually nothing but protein. Uuuggghh.
I know now -- again -- with assurance, that God is right when he says that bread is the staff of life. I also know that there must be a disease of protein-induced psychosis. Because I felt psychotic. I have said this before, but never so publicly "never again." I know that the only way to be truly healthy is to eat a balanced diet, get enough exercise, sleep, and enjoy myself in healthy ways.
