Message from Sam...
  Ask Sam

Food and eating is such a big part of everyone’s daily life and we can’t help but be affected by it in one way or another. I know for some people eating can be a huge problem and it ends up being all they think about. I’m interested in hearing from people who have problems with food and eating – please write in and tell me what it’s like for you.

Remember that although I can’t respond to all of your letters, I do read every single one.

Take care,

Sam
