Overview

  • 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."

    Recovering food addict review

    This is one of the very few books that tells it like it really is. No medical books or doctors address the issues which are addressed in this book. Even THEY will admit their shortcomings if honest.
    The world needs to be educated on the material inside. A MUST READ and LIFE SAVER thrown out for those who can't stop eating.
    Nothing in here is easy, but it WILL save a life if suggestions are followed

    If food is controlling you, this is your book

    If you are ready to admit you are powerless over food and want to break the cycle of food addiction, this is an excellent resource. You can determine whether you have a food addiction and the author outlines a food plan for you to follow if you are addicted to sugar, flour and/or wheat. This book turned my life around and I highly recommend it if you are ready to make big changes.

    This book saved my life

    I had been battling an eating disorder for most of my 43 years. After reading Kay's book 3 years ago, I realized what was wrong with me and got on the road to recovery. Today I no longer battle food; the war is over. I have peace in my mind, body and spirit. Please, buy this book, read it and do yourself a favor.
