Pattience, thank you for the welcome back. No, I haven't read your post about reading books. I'll have to check it out. There is another diet site I belong to that think Gary Taubs's books are the holy grail. But, I don't believe everything he says because everyone is different.
I don't plan on giving up bread altogether because I like it too much and it keeps me full. I plan to just cut back at home, but will have it when we go out to eat. There is one restaurant where we go for breakfast and they have the best raisin toast.
I hope your don't fall off the wagon either. I enjoy reading your posts.
