Thoughts on Food?

I have a very good friend who is in an offshoot of Overeaters Annoymous and says that on her food plan, she cannot have white flour or sugar...and if she can, it is only if the ingrediant is four or less on the label.

I think this is very interesting.

And I think OA and WW have a lot in common in terms of the actual concepts. The only thing is that I wish WW incorporated more about emotional process into the meetings. Like have everyone talk in detail about a trigger moment and how they chose to get through it. For me, it's become as simple (and as hard) as learning how to say "I am not hungry. I am MAD." or sad or whatever. Usually mad or sad are my triggers but it is a LOT EASIER to understand and see them coming and then choose to do something else.
