Overview

Fight food addiction and overeating with fitness guides, recipes, and meal plans from renowned physician Pam Peeke.

In The Hunger Fix, Dr. Pam Peeke uses the latest neuroscience to explain how unhealthy food and behavioral "fixes" have gotten us ensnared in a vicious cycle of overeating and addiction. She even shows that dopamine rushes in the body work exactly the same way with food as with cocaine. Luckily, we are all capable of rewiring, and the very same dopamine-driven system can be used to reward us for healthful, exciting, and fulfilling activities.

The Hunger Fix
lays out a science-based, three-stage plan to break the addiction to false fixes and replace them with healthier actions. Fitness guides, meal plans, and recipes are constructed to bolster the growth of new neurons and stimulate the body's reward system. Gradually, healthy fixes like meditating, going for a run, laughing, and learning a new language will replace the junk food, couch time, and other bad habits that leave us unhappy and overweight.

Packed with practical tips, useful advice, and plenty of wit, wisdom, and inspiring stories of those who have successfully transformed their bodies, The Hunger Fix is a life-changing program for anyone (of any size) trapped by food obsession and the urge to overeat.

As a former addiction counselor AND a food addict myself, I have to say this book hits it all right on the head. I always knew I had a "problem" with food, but while I was reading this book everything started to click. It all makes so much sense! If you are feeling out of control over your eating habits PLEASE read this book!

If you suffer from food addiction, you will find this book has no nonsense advice on learning to live with your addiction. It isn't a miracle cure, however you can learn to say no.
