Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101 – Food Addiction: Deadlier than Drinking?
Today we tackle the topic of food addiction. Is compulsive eating really an addiction? Doesn’t everyone use food for comfort at one time or another? Is that addiction? John Kiernan is the guest this week. He is a speaker and writer who is working on a book called “Recovery from the Food Relapse Cycle”. John tells Denise about his experience as an alcoholic and as a food addict. There are resources mentioned to support those who believe they have an addiction to food. Is a 12 step group (OALAIG.org or OA.org) the answer or is it Weight Watchers or Jenny Craig? Listen to John’s perspective then make your own conclusions.
