“I had become increasingly weak, my energy was so low that I could barely make it through a regular day and I had aches and pains of some sort all of the time. The debilitating effect of the weakness and fatigue led to depression because I could no longer do the things I wanted to do. The many health care professionals I consulted with told me repeatedly that there was nothing wrong with me.

The great news for the food lover in me is that I’ve found a wealth of wonderful things to eat and I enjoy them as just much as the ones that I’ve chosen to put aside. An unexpected bonus is that I’ve lost the ravenous appetite and cravings that have been part of my relationship with food for as long as I can remember.
My only regret is that this didn’t happen sooner.”
