Boy I never realized how something so simple as eating on time,the basic food groups,could have contributed so much to me not be hungry and not thinking about food so much. In the past I would be liquid fasts, all carb, no carb, low carbs, take diet shakes, bars, meal replacements, eat on the run..no eating schedule..just whenever I thought about it..then WHAM binge at night..and purge...depending on the level of emotional turmoil going on. Since I started my self imposed rehab program where I scheduled my meals "iron clad" meaning it is an appointment on my calender around which other things will be scheduled...and eating from all the food groups..something I never allowed myself to do before, thinking that is way too much food and not enough weight loss, I haven't been hungry, craving, or thinking about food. Granted the other tools like exercise and meditation plays parts in my recovery as well, but the physical hunger and craving is GONE. This being SIMPLE in no way means it is EASY...It is tough, specially in the beginning...my tests are still to come and will be needing your counsel...what about vacations, socials, out of town weddings which is coming up for me abroad? The challenges are still there..I don't for a minute underestimate our enemy...but for today,just for today..I've won over my addiction...
