I am not alone in my addiction. 1/3 of all Americans are obese and another 1/3 are overweight, in most cases because of difficulty controlling food intake – eating too much of the wrong (unhealthful) types of foods.

It is generally low in plant based whole foods, including few fruits, vegetables, whole grains and beans.
