It has happened to me twice in the last year that I've felt like I finally figured out how to eat less, finally got it straightened out so that NOW I know how to do it---and then found out that I had a hidden infection raging in my head somewhere. Five or six days on antibiotics and I have lost my new-found knowledge. Oh come back to me, brief sweet window of simple easy eating!
