Dr. Atkins vs. Christ

The Dr. Atkins diet fad is reaching a fever pitch. At this point I know more people on the famed diet than not. As you know I tend to shun all fads until they stand the test of time (lest I be labelled timberlike). During a riveting discussion at work today it was brought to light the perilous decision the Christian or Catholic must make while on the oft praised diet. The body of Christ and the blood of Christ are not on said dieter’s eatable list. So what does one tell the priest when offered Communion? “Accept this bread for it is my body.” “Oh, no thank you. I’m on a diet.”
