When I was 16 and graduated from high school, I was a bit of a pudge. See above.
A couple of years later, I went on my own version of a low carb diet. Results above.
I don't think I ate another carb for ten years. Then one day I had an ice cream cone. It was all over.
Much, much, much later--many pounds later-- I sent for Nutrisystem. Actually, I did it yesterday. The march toward sylphdom has begun.
The food sounds absolutely vile, by the way.
