I loved meat. I loved fast food – kathi roles, sev puri, vada pav. I adored Indian sweet shops, especially Sweet Bengal. I remember an incident where my wife (who is way more health-conscious than I am) was ordering a salad at a restaurant and I said to her, “I will never in my entire life be caught ordering a salad at a restaurant. I just think it’s bizarre! and a waste of money.”
During the past month, there have been plenty of fancy dinners, mother’s home cooked feasts and most of my favourite desserts waving out to me. Surprisingly, I’ve managed to resist them all and quite effortlessly at that. It feels like my body’s been recalibrated or maybe it’s my brain!
