Here’s something I found while digging through boxes and organizing my files over the holidays. The picture below is from around 20 years ago. The guys in my old band and I got together for a reunion — we hadn’t played together in 10 years, so we set up in the keyboard player’s living room and recorded ourselves playing some of our old favorites.
I was still a big believer in the dangers of fat in general and saturated fats specifically in those days. I lived mostly on pasta, rice, potatoes, Grape-Nuts with skim milk and whole-grain bread. I also ate Egg Beaters instead of real eggs. I didn’t drink sodas or eat candy. In fact, I didn’t consume sugar at all. I knew sugar was bad.
You can see how well that diet was working for me.
