February 2014
February might not officially be National Chocolate Month, but it sure feels that way with all of the holiday candy around. We cannot walk into a CVS or supermarket without seeing an abundance of marked-down Valentine's Day candy and newly-stocked Easter treats.  Leftovers from Valentine's Day are probably in your office seemingly calling to you right now.

Chocolate is more than the staple of these holidays. We find it to be a source of tension and confusion for many of our patients. Hopefully, this month's "He Said, She Said" will provide some useful perspective that will leave you with a healthier relationship with chocolate.

She Said


Among my patients, there doesn't seem to be a more polarizing food than chocolate. Many of my patients have a love/hate relationship with it. On the one hand, it's the quintessential indulgence, one to be savored on special occasions and eaten with gusto. On the other hand, especially for those who are struggling with an eating disorder, chocolate can be a fear food, one that they feel  they cannot control themselves around.

Finale, Boston  
To keep with our chocolate-themed newsletter, we thought it would be fun to review one of our favorite dessert restaurants, Finale. We had our very first date at the Finale in Coolidge Corner (which sadly is no longer), so the restaurant holds a special place in our hearts.
