Sugar Cravings, Carbs and Preparing for Thanksgving

Thanksgiving is coming, and I'm thinking about you.  If you've got an eating disorder it's time to prepare for a day of food obsession, food love, food cooking, food leftovers and food conversation.  I rarely discuss specific foods on this site but the blog, "Does Every Woman Have an Eating Disorder?" caught my eye tonight, especially the article,  "Come back to carbs."
