I have an overeating disorder where I eat without being hungry. Now, I got rid of the cravings, I don’t eat sugar anymore and most important I quit eating at night. I went from a size 16 to a size 14 and that is too loose. Herbs, acupuncture and exercise have helped. There’s no specific diet, just eating healthy meals and drinking green smoothies. That fills me up and controls my cravings. I’m still continuing strong in my changes even after the class is over. Other people notice and comment.
