Well to be honest I know I have a problem with food. I would not go so far as to say it is something that can be medically ranked as being an outright disorder, but I rather view it as a really bad habit on my part.

I am a stress eater. When I stress, I want to eat, and it is usually the really bad stuff that I go after, fatty comfort food, chocolate, ice-cream… all the usual suspects.

Then I read something that really made me think:
http://zenhabits.net/crush/
“We don’t know how to cope with stress and boredom in a healthy way.”

And its truth hit home. I don’t know how to cope properly with the stress in my life, so I turn to stuffing my face. And of course the fact that I am stuck behind a computer for hours on end every week only add to the problem. In addition, not looking after my body, and having it in a condition of being tired and run down just adds to my inability to cope, and so the vicious cycle feeds itself in a never-ending loop.

But I have decided to put my foot down now. I am going to break this cycle one small habit at a time. And hopefully with the support of friends this is going to become a reality within the next few months.

Acv
1-2 tbsp a day for two weeks got rid of my gall stones. The ACV stimulates bile production which aids in digestion and helps cleanse the gall bladder and liver. Don't know about weight loss.
