In previous posts, I have celebrated how lean you will get once you eliminate bread from your diet. In the post Be Your Own Dermatologist, I even covered how removing grains could clear up skin inflammation. Today I realized that I never shared the downside to life without bread. It’s not all rainbows and unicorns.
There is a price to pay.

When I removed bread, pasta, baked goods and noodles from my diet, my waist got small and my pants started to fall down. I tightened my belt until there were no more notches. I went out and bought a new belt, jeans and shorts. I had hundreds of dollars worth of jeans that no longer fit me. I donated them to the GeekBeast.
Now after another year of being bread free, I have discovered that the jeans I bought in 2009-2010 are now too loose. Looks like I’ll be returning to the mall soon to buy still smaller jeans.
So let this be a lesson. When you stop buying bread, put that money aside. You’ll need it later when you are forced to buy a smaller wardrobe.
