I was talking with a friend over dinner one night about how
she and I were proof that enduring change around food really does
happen. She and I were serious binge-eaters earlier in our lives, decades ago.
She even wrote about her food excesses in a national women’s magazine! Now in
our 50s and 60s, we’re radically different people than we were in our
food-hazed days. We eat mindfully and enjoyably, with attention and care. Our
wild and crazy eating life is long gone—we have changed our brains permanently!
