So here’s my deep, dark secret…I’m addicted to bread. I used to have very clear and not overly sympathetic ideas about people who struggled with smoking, overeating, and every other kind of addiction going, and then I realized I had my own. I run (well, I’m starting up again after being sidelined for a couple of months) and I workout and am in pretty good shape. I suspect I’m addicted to running, but that one isn’t likely to kill me…just cause injury. The bread one is scarier. I don’t think I’ve gone a day without bread in, well, years. Toast in the morning, sandwich at lunch, some kind of roll at dinner, and if not that, definitely carbs in the form of potatoes. Now that I’m getting back to my running (and oh what a glorious feeling it is!) I want to use the opportunity to tackle my eating habits, too, and I’ve decided to target bread and carbs. My girlfriend is a very healthy eater and has been a big help in both setting an example and offering me sound advice. Now I want to step it up a notch and see if any of you have kicked this habit, and if so, find out how you did it.
As I write this I’ve been eating a toasted English muffin. Help me!
