Self Esteem & Confidence

So many of us go through our lives burdened by low self esteem. We constantly make negative statements about ourselves.

In an ideal world food should simply be an enjoyable way to fuel the body. However in some instances, food has become inextricably linked with emotional messages that have nothing whatsoever to do with nourishing the body.
