      Food For Thought Fed My Soul.

      I believe people and books appear in your life when you are ready to receive their wisdom. I was bulimic for 46 years, went for treatment and actually today – Valentine Day – I am celebrating being five years binge and purge free.

      I always resisted calling my bulimia more than just a bad habit. Until I read Food for Thought. The book dispelled my resistance dramatically to delving deeper into the origins of my disordered eating patterns.

      Dr. Savelle-Rocklin states: "Bulimia is a symptom that contains and expresses a plethora of meanings; it can be understood as a defense against painful emotional experience, an expression of ambivalence, an attempt at mastery, and a means of self-regulation."

      That is only a taste of the mind-blowing tidbits of information sprinkled throughout Food for Thought, many of which are drawn from examples of different patients battling with eating, weight and body image.

      I have a ton of books on my bookshelves. But this is one I keep close.
