Food Addiction

What do all these things have in common? Eating, smoking, gambling, drinking, shopping, spending and negative thinking.

Answer: These are all habits gone haywire

I teach a behavioral approach to weight loss. I have found that many people are cross-addictive which is why the above list have many things in common. Any questions regarding these topics and why they are so hard for you to break I'll try to explain so you can begin change.

I too read your book, as well as some of your articles posted in various forums on the web. I think you're so right about cross-addiction. The problem with eating is that we can't altogether quit! (:

I did Caryl's program around 15 years ago. I didn't have a lot of weight to lose but I couldn't stop fluctuating 7lbs. up and down. It really bothered me and I wanted a way to get a handle on it. Nowadays, when I gain (or lose) a few pounds too many; I can get it back to my desired weight by simply practicing the things that she taught me way back then. The thing that I love the most about the program is it is absolutely not a diet. And I hate diets! I'm glad that you now have a blog so that I can share this with other people who struggle to keep their weight at what they want it to be.
