I, Like you, am addicted to food. I eat out a lot, although i really can't afford to, mostly because I'd rather eat alone in a restaurant than at home. I know that's different than a lot of people. I am working on making lifestyle changes because I do know that I have to make changes and calling it a diet just sets me up for failure at the start. One thing that has worked for me is the organization TOPS (take off pounds sensibly) and I plan to rejoin this week. I am making a grocery list for healthy, tasty foods. I don't usually buy non-fat stuff, just cut down on my consumption of the regular stuff. I just know that I have to do something about my weight now before it is too late. Good luck to you, and to all of the other posters who are struggling with this problem.
