Overeating, binge eating, anorexia, and bulimia: this book 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 in "comfort food" and engaging in substance abuse? For people struggling with food addictions, achieving recognition of their condition -- to say nothing of gaining support and useful 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.
