Amy Freinberg-Trufas has tried every weight loss strategy and fad diet under the sun and has lost and gained more than 1,000 pounds over the course of her life. But the last time she lost the extra weight (150 pounds to be exact), she kept it off. And it wasn’t by depriving herself of great food or spending hour after hour in the gym.
“It’s really easy to talk about losing weight; putting it into practice is a completely different thing,” she said. “I failed for years — decades — and nothing worked for me. What I did do felt like punishment.”
After more than four decades of suffering the mental and physical burden of obesity — including stints at fat camps, failed attempts at fad dieting, patterns of destructive eating, fat-shaming, body dysmorphia, and self-loathing — Freinberg-Trufas found her personal “why.” How? When the simple words her father spoke on his deathbed resonated with her and allowed her to imagine, create, and ultimately celebrate a new relationship with food. She now joyfully eats with ease every day.
Freinberg-Trufas shares with the world her “why” and how she finally made peace with a lifetime of food addiction in her new book, Food: Eat with Ease Every Day.
Part memoir, part mindset guide, Food: Eat with Ease Every Day is an honest, raw account written with vulnerability, compassion, and humor. By sharing her empowering story, Freinberg-Trufas hopes to help readers begin to see their own way out of anything holding them back from living a joyful life.
“It’s not a shallow repeat of every other food guide, fad diet or recipe book,” she added. “In fact, it’s barely about food at all.”
