Having worked 48+ hours each of the last couple of weeks, I have been easily able to stay away from constant grazing or binging. (I have been called in on my last couple of on-calls.) The thing is it has made me very worn out and tired. Right no... Read more

It seems that every time I let my job or life take me away from the site, I lose control. I get "busy", then "stressed" then I go for my binge foods. This had lead me to the 3 rd time needing surgical intervention to remove a kidney stone. The m... Read more
