The answer has been very clear on this site that only a diet created for overeaters will work and this is why we have helped so many people stop addictions to sugar,carbs,fats, and just about all other foods. In this post we will look at more compelling research from scientists who show clearly what can help stop overeating.

 

The lack of control over how much you eat can be a life long struggle, it is becoming clearer today that many people suffer from food addictions, brain imaging has shown us that food addictions are 100 percent real and must be addressed. The abuse of any food is not healthy but sugar, artificial sweeteners,carbs,junk food are strongly additive, it can take control of your life. What you don’t want is to become a slave to the “Don’t”, the don’t are when you “force yourself” not to eat something, this is will power and it will fail. What can help overeating? First understand that an addiction to food is real and it is based on brain chemistry, never blame yourself, an addiction to food is no different than any other addiction.

 

 

An addiction is an addiction

 

Researchers in England showed us some fascinating research on food addictions and how we can learn from people with alcohol addiction, Sally Marlow is an alcohol addiction researcher at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London and her work with food addiction shows us that there is a common link with all addictions.

 

She stated “As an alcoholic I would go to different areas to buy my alcohol so people wouldn’t recognize me, but I’d also go to different newsagents to buy chocolate so they wouldn’t recognize me.

 

“Sneaking it into the house, not wanting people to see, hiding food, like an alcoholic hiding bottles, hiding empties.” The connection is that an addiction is an addiction.

What can help overeating? The problem is both emotional and physical, this issue is addressed in the Food Addiction Diet report. When you learn that overeating is not your fault but it is caused by emotional and physical factors you are on the right track, only a diet that addresses all these factors can stop the problem, this solution has worked in thousands worldwide

How to break sugar addiction

Only a diet created for Sugar addiction can stop this craving

Only a diet created for Sugar addiction can stop this craving

Sugar addiction is not reversed with will power, do not let anyone fool you into thinking that this problem can be solved with the “I think I can” approach. This site has shown thousands that the true causes of being sugar addicted (or food) is related to the brain. This is supported by tons of neurological studies. When you learn the secret you will see how to break a sugar addiction. It is also important to understand that much of your failed efforts to stop eating is not your fault according to brain researchers..

The brain wants what the brain wants

Brain changes can cause addictions, this is not something that is easily reversed, the changes in the brain can start from childhood or adulthood. Emotional stresses are the triggers that create the majority of food addictions. The lack of understanding of this fact has caused countless of thousands to feel ashamed at their lack of will power. Those who have a difficulty controlling the appetite are often hardest on themselves, it may seem like an area in their lives where they have no control. You may be super successful as a mom, dad, student or business person but you still cannot get a handle on the food problem. How to break a sugar addiction? First we must start in the brain, this sweetener is powerfully addictive, it is as strong as cocaine according to European researchers.

In a recent study rats were given a choice between sugar water and cocaine, and 94% them chose sugar. Even the rats that had previously been addicted to cocaine switched to the sugar once it was a choice.

Both the sugar and cocaine were found to be highly addictive, both activated a section of the brain that caused them to become addicted. Can will power stop a cocaine user? No, it cannot, so why should will power be able to a sugar addiction?

This is why dieting has been a failure for so many, just counting calories or trying to use will power is no match for the brain. You can want to eat less or stop eating a certain food but this is no comparison to the brain desires. Studies show that over 85% of diets are a complete failure, it is not your fault. We have shown that only a diet created for food addictions can stop overeating. This diet has now been used in 7 countries to stop overeating or break sugar addiction.

Fat and embarrassed on Facebook? what to do about it

You don't need facebook to communicate with your friends and family

You don’t need facebook to communicate with your friends and family

I am fat and was embarrassed on facebook was the latest email from a girl who suffers from food addiction. There is a bitter sweet combination when someone decides to join a social network, you open yourself up to so many opinions and judgments from others. Creating a profile and uploading your life can be dangerous. Being fat and embarrassed on facebook is a very common thing and we will tell what to do about it

Prejudice against over-eaters

There is a bias against people that overeat, they are often ridiculed and made the sport of many people’s jokes. In media and television it is common to make fun of the people who are overweight, we see it every day on TV. This site was created to teach people that being overweight is not your fault. Almost all overeating comes from emotional stresses like bad parents, divorce, sexual abuses, physical abuses and more. These are the horrific events that start overeating additions in the brain. This site is not on facebook because we simply do not believe in it. Being fat and embarrassed on face-book’s website is a common occurrence for uncountable thousands. We live in a world that is sadly very superficial, meaning we judge others by how they look not for who they are. This will not change it is a sad part of the human condition.

Please like and follow me

The need to be liked is very human and that is because we are social creatures, but the need to be liked for how we look is what most people really want to achieve, the media has created this monster.

Six pack abs, puffy lips, bedroom eyes, no fat on the body, teeth whiter than normal..etc.

This is what we are fed by the media each day and it works. They make millions and you get embarrassed for not living up to a fake image. So with facebook looking fat can be a problem yet people want to be liked on their website. Many are bullied on the social website by rumors and false stories and some cannot get pass the fact that they were teased or destroyed by what others posted. This food addiction site would love to see everyone close their Facebook account but it is not that easy, most will not leave their site.

We own you

There is a bigger problem though, face-book’s site does not allow you to close your account, you can park it but they own all you have written and posted for life. Like a bad virus your account cannot be deleted.

Fat and embarrassed? I would recommend you leave that site without a second thought.

What do you mean your not on face-book?  This is the question we get everyday and we let people know after their shock subsides that we are not followers of what everyone else does. The  need to communicate is simple let your friends text you or make a simple telephone call.  Let them know you are not on Facebook, they will get over the shock and give you a call

Food addiction withdrawals what to do about it

Trying not to eat it will cause you to eat more later

Trying not to eat it will cause you to eat more later

Food addiction withdrawals are usually a sign that you are trying to win the battle by using will power. Will power does not work according to researchers. The reason for this is scientific; a person who cannot control the appetite has an emotional issue not a physical issue. Food addiction withdrawals happen to people using will power to address the illness. This does not addressed the underlying causes of the overeating.

 

What is happening when you are craving

 

The brain desires something and this is the root cause for the cravings. When you decide not to give the body what it wants the cravings for food become much stronger. At this point comes the uncomfortable feeling and sometimes pain. Brain signals cause this irritation. It is not uncommon to feel irritable and short tempered with other people when cravings come. This is often the result of using will power which does not work. We worked with hundreds of people who had a problem controlling the appetite and then discovered what does work. The answer is “emotional” not “physical”

 

 

Food addiction withdrawals happen to people using “will power” to try to solve the problem and this will not work.

 

This is why we encourage people to eat freely while address the emotional aspects of the condition.  Will power is one of the main reasons dieting fails the person who has an appetite problem. You may say “I will not overeat today” and this may work for a while but then you will end up overeating again. The cycle is repeated. Food addiction withdrawals usually come from trying to use will power to stop overeating. This will not work in the long run as the true cause will never been addressed this way.  The “Friends again” cure for overeating was created by over-eaters who show you how to stop overeating without relying on willpower.  Read it and be set free. Have a great day
