Publisher Comments:

  • Are you a food addict?

  • Do you gain more weight than you lose after every diet?

  • Can one cookie destroy all your good intentions?

  • Do you eat when you are disappointed, tense or anxious?

    Since its publication, Food Addiction has become a primary resource for food addicts and compulsive eaters. Now it is updated and presented in a revised and expanded edition, with a new chapter on relapse. For a food addict, relapse is an ever present danger which begins in the mind before reaching for that cupcake or other trigger food.

    Here food addiction is defined, trigger foods are identified and consequences of food addiction are revealed. A lifetime eating plan demonstrating how to stick with a healthful food plan for the long term is also provided.

    "For some people, foods can be as addictive as alcohol," Kay Sheppard explains. "Gummy bears and marshmallow chicks can be vicious killers whose effects can lead to depression, irritability and even suicide. The terrible truth is that for certain individuals, refined carbohydrates can trigger the addictive process. This book is an effort to help you understand and solve the problems of compulsive eating."

  • Synopsis:

    Argues that food addiction is similar to alcoholism, suggests individuals must abstain from addictive foods, and provides a lifetime eating plan.

    Description:

    Includes bibliographical references (p. 173-176).
