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.

parallels are strong between food and alcohol
- AudioBook Reviewer
No, I don't think so.
Food Junkies is a unique book so I'm not sure what I would compare it to. It is full of information about food addiction and what it is, how the brain is involved, personal stories and what to do if you are struggling with overeating. The entire book resonated with me. I felt validated in my experience, understand that my addiction isn't my fault, and hope about how to deal with it.
The performance was fine.
Food Junkies would make a fantastic documentary.
I am so grateful for this book, and I highly recommend it to anyone who thinks that they may have a problem with over eating.
