Jackie is an anti-diet superhero, combating the good fight against diet-culture conspirators. I hope to eradicate the word “diet” from folk’s vocabulary and replace it with "Conscious Choice."
I will admit that I'm jealous of how “normal eaters” can compensate without calculating what they will eat. Even if they stuff themselves, they can regulate with some degree of insight.
The relationship with food is very different from that of a marriage, friendship, or family member; you can remove them from your life. It might not be easy, and in the case of divorce, it could be costly. But it is doable. Food is a very different kind of relationship because you can’t escape it.
My food codependence began when I was pre-adolescent. My book, "Food Frenzy, My Fight Against Diet Culture," and this website are about my quest of 55 years. I will end by touting my accomplishments, which is the end of binge eating for over 20 years.
