After four decades of gaining and losing 700 plus pounds, I finally discovered the “secret” to ending the battle between my mind, body and hunger –my Food Stories. I am an author, speaker, Food Story Finder, experiential eating expert, and recovering food addict. My first book, Leaving Large – The Stories of a Food Addict, chronicles a lifetime of eating for all the wrong reasons. By unlocking my own unique Food Stories, I debunked long held misconceptions and misconnections about the purpose of eating. Armed with these insights, I now teaches others how to find their own food truths.
