Weigh This Instead!

Life After Emotional & Binge Eating

How Do the Italians Do it?


A member of our A Weigh Out Circle just sent me this Washington Post “Eat, Drink and Be Healthy” Column by Jennifer LaRue Huget, Italians have a healthier attitude about food than American’s do 

I especially identified with the last sentence of her article, “How many of us are gorging on Big Macs or worse because those foods, cheap and readily available, are filling a hole that everyday access to stunning beauty might more amply fill?”

Those of us who struggle with emotional eating often report a “void” that we end up filling with food. Check out my post tomorrow. While we can’t all jet off to Italy when we find ourselves hungry for beauty, I have some other ideas about what we might do when we find ourselves food-focused.  And I’d like to hear (and share) your ideas, as well.
