Rectifying aveiros of eating [#480]

Question:

I am a baal teschuvah who ate treifos and other forbidden foods that dulled my heart.  I now want to purify my heart of these aveiros. What can I do to rectify these transgressions in such a weak generation?

Answer:

Before eating, you should pray a prayer before your Creator, that your eating will be permitted and not forbidden. You should also conquer the lust for food by not eating immediately - wait before eating. In this way, you will be healed for the rest of your life,
