Problem: I'm bloated
Food fix #1: Dig in to juicy fruits and vegetables

Fruits and veggie's are the way to go. I love watermelon and cantaloupe. Those two help me fight all my cravings.
Good article for hawking Dr. Hyman's book. Unfortunately alot of people who read it are going to take from it "I feel bad; eat food. If a little is good, more will be better." Obesity mentality at it's best.
I truly believe that food can be THY MEDICINE!
