The challenge: from 26 February to 4 March I'm cutting out all wheat and processed sweets. These foods give me stomach aches and keep me awake at night, so I've got to make a change. I think if I could just get a streak going and stop the sugar roller coaster, I might be able to stick to healthier habits. It's worth a try anyway. I've recruited a co-worker to help me stay honest.
It turns out that the Catholic holy season of Lent started on Wednesday. What a coincidence! But unlike those who are eating healthier for 40 days, I'm cutting carbs for myself, not Jesus.
I remind you: in 1986 I gave up Catholicism for Lent.
