No candy, no bread, no cheese

Hi Folks-

So it’s a little embarrassing to admit that Sharon and I are beginning the “Clean” Diet for the third time today. Each of the last two times we had great results, changing our diets completely, losing lots of weight, noticing other health benefits and so on. The rewards were substantial each time we went on the diet. The problem, as we see it is that we each over time have gained back every pound we lost. And it was easy, no thought required. What we need is a plan for transitioning off the diet. From a world with No coffee, no sugar, no bread, no potatoes, no beef or pork, no dairy whatsoever, no alcohol – we simply have to bring some of the forbidden foods back into our diets – in a reasonable manner.

So that’s the challenge in a nutshell. Saying No for three and a half weeks and then learning how to say yes in a reasonable way. Tonight we’re having Shepherds Pie, with ground lamb and mashed cauliflower instead of potatoes and corn. We’ll try not to whine much over the next few weeks.

Unfortunately, we were unable to get soft shell crabs for tomorrow but they may be available on Friday. Vermont Sushi Factory has added shrimp sushi rolls to their offerings and these are killer.
