For those of you new to the blog, I was formerly an obese and chronically malnourished food addict who has been completely set free from all food addictions and eating disorders; including anorexia, nutrient restrictive dieting, yo-yo dieting, and binge eating disorder as result of embracing the nutritarian lifestyle that’s described in Eat to Live and Eat for Health. Here is my transformation.
This past February, seven months after making the commitment to get my health back, I was recovering from a major surgery that removed a non-cancerous tumor. I couldn’t drive or do much of anything for a couple of weeks, so I started a thread on Dr. Fuhrman’s the members’ center.
By that time, I had lost over 60 lbs, and my only intention was to write a few posts during the time of recovery. For lack of a creative epiphany, I titled the thread, “journey of transformation; diary of change.” Then after driving restrictions were lifted, I began to wind down my writing, but the members encouraged me to keep posting. So I did.
Well the rest is history, and here I am; a former food addict who had multiple eating disorders and “did it all wrong” before discovering the key to freedom and health through the books Eat to Live and Eat for Health, authored by Joel Fuhrman, MD.
Throughout my writings on here, I will be sharing random excerpts from that thread, and success tips that I learned along the way in getting my health back.
I encourage those lost in the confusing maze of food addiction that results in chronic malnutrition and disease, complete freedom is totally possible.
If you are serious about getting free, you must make the time to read and understand Eat to Live and Eat for Health, especially the sections “Changing How You Think” and “Understanding Hunger” in Eat for Health; plus listen to the overeating teleconference on the members’ center.
There are no quick fixes. There are no short cuts. You must do your homework.
Correct information, not willpower, will be the key to unlock your captivity.
Change the mind. The body will change.
You will never regret getting your health and life back!
