I was someone who ate healthy foods. And, then, a lot of other stuff. Since I'm a librarian, naturally, it was a book that kicked that out of me: The End of Overeating by David Kessler. It's about how processed foods are engineered to trigger cravings for more processed food. I stopped junk food cold turkey after reading that book.

I still want to eat a large volume of food, so I eat giant salads. Not exactly mindlessly, but not mindful, either.

I don't count calories, but I plan my eating the night before (I don't always follow the plan 100%, but having a plan makes a difference).

Just some other things to think about, but having co-dependent tendencies myself, I rather like the idea of letting it go and focusing on taking care of yourself. Who knows, your showing what works by example may be what it takes.
