Two days ago I told you about the key historical events of 1850.  If you did not read them, please do.  They are dramatic.  More dramatic for me is the real 1850.  Two weeks ago I made a commitment as I approached 60 to eat only 1850 calories per day for the rest of my life.  1850?  That is dramatic.  Why?  My reasons are numerous and I want to remain “Fit to Lead” and contribute for the next 15 years.  1850 is the equivalent of 190 pounds one year from now.  After two weeks I feel great.  I will not put food in my mouth unless I know exactly the calorie information in advance.

1850 is The Narrow Passage.
