I’ve given up wheat and I’m expecting to become lithe and slender any day now.
I got the idea from a book I saw recently in a bookstore (there’s a shocker – a book in a bookstore). I didn’t read it, but I managed to get the gist from the title and the blurb on the back cover. It turns out wheat is almost certainly the culprit responsible for my ever-expanding belly, and simply cutting it out of my diet will decrease my appetite and cause me to miraculously shed pounds. Well, I’m game to give it a go!
It’s been going quite well, although it transpires that wheat is the primary ingredient in almost anything worth eating – bread, cakes, biscuits, bagels – the list goes on and on. Thank goodness I still have chocolate, but not kit-kats. I’m pretty certain that chocolate almonds, being both wheat free and full of essential fatty acids, are probably better than vegetables.
As I was slugging down Hubby’s vodka and orange this evening he laughingly warned me that it’s made with wheat. Ha ha, I thought, you’re so hilariously witty. Except he was right. The brand I was drinking is apparently made only from the finest Swedish winter wheat. Well clearly it doesn’t count once it’s distilled.
