Three years ago, I gave up eating sweet
desserts, nocturnal snacks of chocolate bites,
and gourmet cookies too. I rarely cheat-
ed that proscription, based on what indicts
the party line: the anti-science Plate.
Amazingly, I didn’t feel a lack.
I soon forsook most flour meals. I rate
this diet low in carb and high in fat.

I’ve done my reading – I was not surprised
to lose unwanted weight and hunger pains.
But soon I noted sharper mind, revised
and gentler reasoning: all mental gains.
And lately I’m enjoying what appears
to be an end to ringing in my ears.
