SMAIER1,

I do not believe that self control is something that someone naturally has. It is a skill, like writing or playing an instrument, that improves with practice. We set out small goals to work toward and use those small victories to accomplish larger ones. For example, eating more fruits and vegetables. I can try to eat 9 a day. This will naturally remove other things from my menu that are not as healthy for me.

Keeping track of my food was a huge thing for me. It put everything I was eating in front of my eyes and forced me to be honest with myself. Only then could I start to make major changes.

Good luck. We are all here to support you.

Time to start thinking positively. You might not have much self control but you surely have some, everyone does. So work with it, build it, believe in it.
all the best,

Dr. Joel Fuhrman in his book Eat to Live says people who are on a Standard American Diet are starved nutritionally. This is a good place to be for support. Ask all the questions you may have and someone will be available to answer them.

I would suggest reading some books to help you start. The China Study, Eat to Live, The Engine 2 Diet, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease and anything by Dr. Dean Ornish or Dr. Neal Barnard are all good places to begin.

Life IS stress. I'd say youve been consuming processed salty fatty phood and you need to turn that around. Its called being nutritionally starved.
