We Get To Learn A New Way Of Living

Amanda Leith on podcast Host Susan Branscome talks with Amanda Leith, Director, Shift, Recovery By Acorn. Amanda was a late-stage food addict and weighed 350 pounds. Her disease progressed until she was no longer eating for the effects of food, but because she was compelled to eat compulsively to avoid the discomfort of withdrawal symptoms. Amanda Leith entered a food addiction recovery program and discovered the underlying issues which produce life-changing results and freedom from food obsession. Today she has lived in recovery for years fully abstinent from sugar, processed foods, and volume eating while maintaining a healthy body weight. Listen to Amanda’s inspiring story of finding her own recovery from food addiction as she now uses her experience and her passion to help others find freedom from food obsession and seek recovery from this deadly disease. Amanda shares, “I had to eliminate flour and sugar from my food plan - all the foods I was addicted to. Now I weigh and measure my food. I have freedom in my mind, I don’t obsess about food. I no longer need any medication for diabetes, high cholesterol or high blood pressure! I truly have food freedom and freedom to live my life.” About SHiFT – Recovery by Acorn Amanda Leith is an addiction counselor, a certified food addiction counselor, FAI/ACORN certified food addiction professional and CENAPS-trained Advanced Relapse Prevention Specialist (ARPS), with a background in drug and alcohol counseling and group facilitation.
