<p><strong>What Is Pancreatitis?</strong></p>
<p>Pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas, an organ that produces digestive enzymes and hormones (insulin and glucagon).

I think each of us who struggles with food issues and weight issues needs to ask, particularly as we draw to the end of the year, "Why is this New Year going to be the year I finally conquer my weight and eating issues?" You can't change entrenched patterns and yo-yo dieting and feeding disorders unless you analyze what hasn't worked, what isn't likely to work, and what then is going to be the new and different approach to finally treat your condition, for the long term.
So let's look at what typically doesn't work (for most people). That includes:
