Food Junkies

338 printed pages
Overeating, binge eating, obesity, anorexia, and bulimia: Food Junkies tackles the complex, poorly understood issue of food addiction from the perspectives of a medical researcher and dozens of survivors. What exactly is food addiction? Is it possible to draw a hard line between indulging cravings for “comfort food” and engaging in substance abuse? For people struggling with food addictions, recognizing their condition — to say nothing of gaining support and advice — remains a frustrating battle.

Built around the experiences of people suffering and recovering from food addictions, Food Junkies offers practical information grounded in medical science, while putting a face to the problems of food addiction. It is meant to be a knowledgeable and friendly guide on the road to food serenity.

you see yourself as a food addict you must treat your trigger foods as a drug. The most successful treatment for any drug addiction, from alcohol to drugs to food, is abstinence from the trigger substance. Our addicted brain — whether it is so for genetic, psychological, or even environmental reasons — is wired to crave more as soon as even the smallest amount has entered our system. Like a flame igniting kindling, trigger foods ignite a fiery and voracious appetite that makes us want to eat, eat, eat.
It is a primal survival mechanism. In fact, we enjoy foods that are high in fat and sugar for that very reason — they’re energy-dense and ensure our survival by enticing us to eat more for immediate energy and storage purposes. Even the recovered food addict still enjoys food.
