Food Junkies Recovery from Food Addiction

Overeating, binge eating, obesity, anorexia, and bulimia -- Food Junkies tackles the complex, poorly understood issue of food addiction from the perspective of a medical researcher and dozens of survivors. What exactly is food addiction? How is it different than an eating disorder such as bulimia or binge eating?  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 remains a frustrating battle. Diagnosis and treatment evades the suffering food addict.
