Thirteen-and-one-half years ago, Lou weighed 465 pounds. Probably more, but that is the highest a scale weighed. He figured that if he didn't lose a lot of weight, he was going to die.
So, Lou joined Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous (FA), a group based on the twelve principles of Alcoholics Anonymous. He loves wheat and sugar but has had none in 13-1/2 years. He eats only healthy foods in strictly measured portions, and he is disciplined. Today Lou weighs 300 pounds less and is healthy. And, he leads the Naples chapter of FA. Congratulations, Lou.
