Have you heard  many people say they’re addicted to food? Or addicted to sugar? Chocolate? Various other foods? 

Have  you thought you were, too?

Maybe you’ve read that sugar is supposedly addictive because it lights up your brain’s reward center the same way that cocaine does. The truth is that there are all kinds of wonderful things that light up your brain’s so-called reward center. Like falling in love or listening to music. Lighting up your brain is NOT evidence that something is addictive. 

In recent years, there have been a lot of studies on the subject. In this episode, I discuss some of them and their conclusions. 

But more importantly, we talk about these questions:

What exactly do you get from believing you’re addicted to food or sugar anyway? 

Why would you want to believe it?

Should you give up eating sugar?

LISTEN to learn why believing you’re addicted affects your ability to address your weight issues. And what you can do that will actually help you develop a peaceful relationship with food and eating.
