I wanted to ask those who struggle with food addiction what has been the most helpful thing to them in struggling with the problem. I am planning to undergo a lifestyle change..shortly that I hope will combat it, and I could use everyone's support. I struggle with my self worth though as to whether I am really worth it and I don't want that to derail me. Also, I tend to start cheating after about a week or two when I am dieting, and it eventually derails my progress. However, of course food addiction is not just food but using food to combat inner emptiness.
