A fact-filled guide to coping with compulsive overeating problems by an experienced addiction doctor who draws on many patients' stories of recovery.
Overeating, binge eating, obesity, anorexia, and bulimia: Food Junkies tackles the complex, poorly understood issue of food addiction from the perspectives of a medical researcher and dozens of survivors. What exactly is food addiction? Is it possible to draw a hard line between indulging cravings for "comfort food" and engaging in substance abuse? For people struggling with food addictions, recognizing their condition - to say nothing of gaining support and advice - remains a frustrating battle.
Built around the experiences of people suffering and recovering from food addictions, Food Junkies offers practical information grounded in medical science, while putting a face to the problems of food addiction. It is meant to be a knowledgeable and friendly guide on the road to food serenity.

Thoughtful and Provocative Examination of Addictio
If you could sum up Food Junkies in three words, what would they be?
What did you like best about this story?
It examines a disease which has been long misunderstood, shamed and ignored with honesty, clarity and careful consideration of research as well as the authors' personal and professional experience.
What three words best describe Lisa Bunting’s voice?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No. Since I relate to this topic I had to listen and digest it in small parts over time.

No Easy Fixes Here
An interesting and engaging book and perspective. After hearing it, I realize that being addicted to food is a spectrum. self awareness of where we fall in this spectrum is essential to healing. Dr. Tarman makes a compelling case for abstinence from trigger foods, not a popular stance to take. Great book, glad to have read it.

Could totally relate
Never saw myself as a food addict before but this makes so much sense and is such a relief to have things and feelings explained that you are too afraid to voice or even comprehend what's going on.
I always thought moderation was the key - now I have better tools that the door is no longer locked.

Started with a strong premise but deteriorated into psudo-science. Stopped reading when "belief in a higher power" was stated as a pre-requisit for recovery.
