When I turned 30, I started writing a book. Originally, entitled The Dieter's Blues, I genuinely thought I was on the final decent into a more relaxed relationship with food & that the book would serve as a diary of sorts to work through my final neuroses & skewed body issues. While I had made much progress through my earlier years, at 30 years old, I truly thought I had calmed my demons, I thought I was genuinely educated about food & how to eat for optimum health. In actuality, all I knew how to do was be an awesome Yoyo Dieter. I had zero concept of the difference between being on a diet, verses actually having a healthy diet. Now, I get it.
This book will chronicle my relationship to food and to myself. It will help serve as a reminder that Food Addiction is real and can really be a real sucker of life's joy factor. As someone who is now on the other side of the compulsiveness, I want others to know they are not alone.
