Here's the thing. There is no eating of bread on the Joel Fuhrman plan. He's not a whole grains kind of guy even. Leafy greens, dense vegetables, fruit, soy and beans are his idea of a balanced diet. I can wrap my mind around losing the dairy as I will also be giving up coffee (no need for half and half now) and will "live" without cheese. But bread, oh, that's a tough one. I can give up sugar, no problem, diet soda, sure! Oh, but I will miss bread.
However, eyes on the prize, right? So as I sit in my windowless office at work - you do know that professors really don't do anything important during office hours, right? - I will savor one of my last pieces of bread with real butter (another thing I must give up - double sigh).
I will prevail.
