December 14, 2015 was a life-altering day for me. I entered a treatment centre for my food addiction and my life has been
transformed, as well as losing 75 pounds. I was a person who thought I couldn’t drive to Florida without eating peanut butter sandwiches!
Now I have healthy choices! In my ignorance of my disease, I didn’t realize flour was a trigger for me. During the whole three
weeks, I was never hungry. In fact, a lot of the time it was too much food!
