Do I Have a Food Addiction?
Fact vs. fiction - Understanding the realities of food addiction
Do you feel like you are addicted to food, but don’t know why?
You are not alone!
Of course you may feel addicted to food! Some food is designed that way!
Certain combinations of food is manufactured and processed to be highly palatable, or "addictive feeling".
Can't put that bag of "X food item" down?
It is no wonder since the food industry has cleverly learned how to make some combinations of nutrients like sugar, fat and salt, more desirable or "addictive tasting" than other nutrients.
Some combinations take advantage of the reward system of the brain which, when triggered, stimulates us to keep eating – and not necessarily prompting us to stop.
Just because you can't put that bag of "X food item" down, it doesn't necessarily mean that you are a food addict or addicted to food.
Some experts even question the validity of calling any food your "drug of choice."
In this workshop, we dive into the true definition of addiction and see how this compares to food addiction.
There are so many reasons why we may feel addicted to food, but you don't have to continue to struggle.
You don't have to feel powerless over food anymore!
