This is the season of excess with food and alcohol, so why set yourself up for failure? Starting any kind of diet now would be crazy making. So we will take baby steps.
The first step is to get honest.
Do you binge? Here are some questions to help you assess your eating.
Quiz: Are You On the Road to A Binge?
Are you on the perfect diet . . . for a gerbil?
Do you rate your day by how well you waged your war with food?
