1 Year and 50 Pounds Later (How I Lost A Lot of Weight Quickly)

One year ago today I woke up and decided to give up my two favorite foods: bread and cereal. Just like that, poof, no more bread and no more cereal. Cold turkey a few days after Turkey Day. I had been trying to lose weight again and again with varying […]

Complicated Donuts And A Fat Boy

Donuts and I have a long, complicated history. Our story probably started before I can even remember. Maybe there was a happy, pudgy-faced young boy being driven to the local Dunkin’ Donuts on weekend mornings; his dad with the newspaper folded neatly under an arm, his mom with a cup […]
