By The Numbers

Yesterday I asked my primary care doctor to do the blood work so I’d have a foundation for the Whole Foods Plant Based diet. She did. She also cautioned me that although I’d feel remarkably better, I shouldn’t get my hopes too high. Congestive heart failure and premature ventricular contractions can’t be cured by diet alone. Disappointed? Indeed. Dissuaded? Never. I’m still committed.

The diet itself is becoming increasingly more natural. The only thing this diet is going to harm is my social life. Beers Buddies Bullshits will be in my rear view. No one wants to sit with someone who makes them feel self-conscious or remorseful. It’s okay. You want to know what I crave? Quiet talks with substance. I’m shedding the substances that suppress the quiet.
