Life Gets Tasteless by Alanmeaney on Mixcloud

While having a gastric band operation, Maureen Nestor has a near death experience. During this, she looks back at her life and her relationship with food and her body. With the help of her spirit guide; A, she realises how much of her time she spent eating, dieting and worrying about her weight. Maureen comes to the realisation that no matter how much you eat, life can get tasteless.
