As I looked over various diet plans, I noticed many said, “No bread.” Each time I read that, Matthew 6:11 would run through my head.
“Give us, Lord, our daily bread.”
Then I looked at different menu plans written by nutritionists. There were two servings of bread/cereal at breakfast and lunch. I broke down the menus into the four food groups: Bread, Fruits and Vegetables, Dairy, and Meats.
My daily goal was 1 Bread, 4 Fruits, 6 Vegetables, 3 Dairy, 1 Meat and 11 glasses of water. I would eat a light breakfast with 1 bread; super light lunch and dinner, no bread. I would still be hungry after dinner. I need “Daily Bread!”
I worked out a new plan. I will continue to count calories and monitor the results. I know God will correct me when I get off course.

“…Learning wisdom is a journey full of twists and turns, obstacles and open doors, and good and bad choices. Wisdom is found in straight courses (4:11); the way of the righteous is like morning light (4:18). The way of the wicked… is full of stumbling (4:16) and is like deep darkness (4:19).” Common English Bible Notes on Proverbs 4:10-19
