"Confessions of a Food Addict"

Thursday, May 02, 2013

I read this article yesterday, and it is well worth the time.

I see a lot of me in her, and thought about her words as I prepared food for myself at breakfast and lunch today. It seems it will always be a thoughtful process, to eat right.

Would love to hear your thoughts about it.

    The thoughtfulness of this will help you

    "Oh, just a little heroine won't hurt you. I brought it especially for you to try! Go on!" The ridiculousness of that is so obvious and yet often people don't realize that many people have to look at food as a drug. I am also one of those people who is frequently thinking about when and what I'll be having for lunch while I'm still eating breakfast, although I'm on a path to freedom from that. I've never thought of it as an addiction to food before (never have done the trash diving!) but it certainly is something to get a handle on. I have had success doing what the author has done - cut out white flour (for me it was all wheat) and sugar and nix all snacking between meals. The "No S" plan (no sweets, no snacks, no seconds) has been successful for me and many others, but it's not for everyone, especially those whose blood sugar tanks easily. It's all a learning process, I guess, and figuring out what works for each of us as individuals. Thanks for sharing this article!

    This article is spot on! Although I can't think of any time I've taken food back out of the garbage, I am constantly calculating my next meal or how I can fit in stuff I don't need (the white flour/sugar stuff). I'm a food addict but I don't think I've hit the 'recovery stage' yet...still trying to figure it all out first.
