Jon Acuff Brought Dinner Back!

Jon AcuffJon Acuff is one of many Dads around the world who is acutely aware of food- even if he doesn’t cook (ok…. he did one time!) And while he is keenly aware that the way to a heart is through the stomach…. he and his wife, Jenny, live out that a crucial way to connect to each other and to their two young daughters is around the dinner table.

Jon Acuff is Bringing Dinner Back! Week #2: Better dinners through bigger stories.

Today marks the end of week two of the dinner challenge. (You can read about the first week “Dinner Unplugged” right here.)

Sugar… Ah, Honey Honey! Part II

It was much more difficult than I imagined it would be, simply because I believed I did not have an issue with sugar AT ALL! It took about two months to replace my typical daily eating habits with real food. I decided that I couldn’t handle depriving myself of anything else, so I added back breads and pastas.

And then, after about four months, I started losing weight! I couldn’t believe it, because I felt like I was eating more food than I had ever eaten in my whole life. Then the weight just started falling off! By the end of that six month experiment, I had lost 35 pounds!!!!
