If you regularly eat when you’re not truly hungry, choose unhealthy comfort foods, or eat beyond fullness, something is out of balance.
When it comes to addiction, abstinence isn’t always the answer, and with food addiction, this is especially true. And yet, for decades nutritional experts have dissected the problem of obesity, and the result has been a series of recommendations about what and how much to eat.
If you’re struggling with obesity or food addiction, you’ve probably been told that you must deprive yourself of certain foods in order to lose weight. You may have also been convinced by the media and by our culture that if you finally become thin, your life will be better, you’ll be happier, and your suffering will come to an end. The problem is it’s not all about the food. It’s about how food is used to self-soothe, to numb ourselves against the pain of living, or to cope with stress and unresolved emotions. Even as your waist whittles away, the problems that caused your food addiction won’t disappear.
For people struggling with food addictions, recognizing their condition - to say nothing of gaining support and advice - remains a frustrating battle.
