I have started The Healthy Fix plan 3 days ago. I knew I had a problem with food at an early age. I had a hard time stopping eating while others didn't. I also couldn't control the impulses my brain were telling me. I knew my problem was bigger than just "loving" to eat. In 2010, I found out that I was a food addict and sugar was my drug of choice. I ate to not have to deal with my feelings. I have lost 30 lbs since then, but hadn't been able to kick that sugar craving. I heard about Dr. Peeke's book and was interested in her approach. I'm on day 3 now, it is extremely hard. I think about food all day long. My mind tells me I need to eat. I know if I were to give in and have pizza (a major trigger) or something with sugar, I would feel better instantly. I just don't want to give in like always. I have had headaches and I am more tired than usual. Does anyone know how long I will feel like this?View Thread
