Local Author's Story Of Kicking Food Addiction

After winning a lifelong battle with food addiction and losing one hundred pounds in about a year, Fort Wayne resident Emily Boller has chronicled that journey in a new book titled Starved to Obesity.

Admitting that the road to wellness is not easy, especially at the beginning, the author points out that her own artwork was one effective tool in this process, and helped in affecting the change.

For insight on Boller's transformation, WBOI's Julia Meek invited her into the studio to talk about the nature of the problem, the connections that were made along the way, and the method she used to combat the illness.
