This whole yearlong no sugar/sweeteners/starches/gluten diet thingy I've been on has been a win-win-win-win thus far. How so, you ask? *Win- it proves my inner fortitude (read that: sheer, unadulterated willpower to not eat sugar). I'm down 40 lbs. as of last week. *Win- despite some pretty vicious cravings, my homicidal urges have finally dissipated.
