After 182 weeks of sharing the highs and lows of trying to get a handle on my weight as a serious eater, I need a break from this column. This column has changed my life and my weight. Every time I see someone who hasn't seen me in a few years and they comment on how good I look, I realize what a force of good this column has been.
It has literally changed my life for the better in more ways than I even realize at the moment.
So I'm taking the rest of August off with the idea that I will use this month-long hiatus to recharge, rethink, and retool the column. I'm thinking the column could, among other things, tell the story of other serious eaters who have successfully embarked on their own caloric journey.
It could be a blogger, chef, restaurant critic or a mixologist or any member of the SE community who wants to share how they balance their love of food while leading a healthy life.
The column could even take different forms. It could involve a recipe, a photo, an illustration, or something else I haven't even thought of yet.
So I'll be back, and in the meantime you'll be hearing from me elsewhere on Serious Eats. See you in September.
