David had been somewhat overweight most of his life, and he enjoyed fast food, sugary drinks, and such. When the Great Shift struck, he was shocked to look in the mirror and see the face of a woman who looked like she could be a fitness model.
He soon discovered he swapped into a body hundreds of miles from his home. News reports indicated most transportation would be shut for days, along with things like grocery stores and restaurants. He realized he’d have to just eat what was in this woman’s house, which to David’s horror was mostly fruits and veggies.
Reluctantly, he nibbled on a strawberry. It actually wasn’t bad; he took a big bite. In fact, as he tried more and more, he realized he enjoyed broccoli, avocados, and even kale! It seemed impossible; he never enjoyed this sort of stuff before. But he began to wonder. He had a different body, which also meant he had different taste buds. It sort of made sense to him as he popped another strawberry into his mouth....
