Since childhood, folk legend Judy Collins has had a tumultuous, fraught relationship with food. Her issues with overeating nearly claimed her career and her life. For decades she thought she simply lacked self-discipline. She tried nearly every diet plan that exists, often turning to alcohol to dull the pain of yet another failed attempt to control her seemingly insatiable cravings.
Today, Judy knows she suffers from an addiction to sugar and grains, flour and wheat. She adheres to a strict diet of unprocessed foods consumed in carefully measured portions. This solution has allowed her to maintain a healthy weight for years, to enjoy the glow of good health and to attain peace of mind.
Join her as she talks with natural health and healing guru Dr. Andrew Weil. She’ll share her personal story, detailed in Cravings: How I Conquered Food, of overcoming compulsive overeating and talk about what she’s learned — so that no one else has to navigate her heart-rending path to recovery.
