I haven't read all of the book yet so I have no physical progress to discuss. I've only read two chapters in fact but I already feel relieved. I feel strong and confident in all areas of my life except with food, specifically sugars. I've watched plates being passed when I already mentally had my piece picked out and would be totally let down when someone else chose that piece, logically knowing that all the others would taste the same. (I actually borrowed that realization from another book I recently read about being addicted to food. That book, however, tried to convince me that I was abused by my parents. When I began looking for a book that wouldn't blame my parents, I found "Potatoes...".) I'm very pleased with this book. It doesn't blame my parents and more importantly, it doesn't blame me. This book also assures me that if I follow the suggested plan (which does not include skipping my favorite foods) I will see rapid changes. I am, of course, eagarly reading on. I am writing now because I was simply anxious to say thank you for explaining this in terms I can understand and for convincing me that I am not at fault. It's simply my responsibility at this point to fix the chemical imbalance. I have one more thing of importance to say to any prospective buyer. After reading the reviews of those people that gave "Potatoes..." a poor rating, it is clear to me that they don't suffer from this problem so don't let them deter you. If you ever lose concentration because you can't get a food out of your mind and then feel on top of the world after you've eaten it (ignoring the guilt) then this book is probably for you. Good luck!!
