We have learn to use food as protection, a feel good substance and an over all a way to hide what we feel inside.

Here is a tip: when you get ready to eat something, ask yourself am I eating because I am hungry, or am I eating because I am in pain, worried, bored or hurt? Be honest with yourself and find a new path to fill your void, something other than food or bad for your health. Remember you are important and are loved.
