Food addictions are real and from my perspective, one of the most difficult addictions to overcome. I can send someone out of my office after one session of stop smoking and have them be smoke free for the rest of their life. For those of us you have struggled with food addiction, we don’t have the luxury of never eating again. As long as I have a pulse, I will need food for nourishment and as humans we commune over food, we break bread together and there are the social, cultural, holiday and religious aspects of food.

By Alan Goldhamer, D.C., October 15, 2013: One reason it is so difficult for people to escape the dietary pleasure trap is the belief in the concept of moderation. A common belief is that everything in moderation is healthful. Although there are some people who can eat processed foods in moderation, if you are struggling
with your weight, chances are YOU are not one of them. When it comes to addiction, moderation is NOT the answer. We do not advise alcoholics to “drink moderately.” We do not advise alcoholics to put their alcohol in a smaller cup to reduce their over consumption, nor do we advise them to put their drink down between sips. We don’t suggest drinking just beer and wine and we don’t tell them to count their ounces of intake. Above all else, most addicts dearly hold to the belief that they can continue to drink moderately, but experience will soon prove this to be a fallacy. We do not advise alcoholics to drink moderately because it DOES NOT WORK! Fat people caught in the dietary pleasure trap are told that they just need some discipline, or they need to chew their food more, put their fork down between each bite, etc. They are told to eat in moderation. This strategy will fail miserably for dietary addicts in the same way it fails for drug addicts.
The 100 percent effective system for treating alcoholism involves the elimination of alcohol. The 100 percent effective system for treating dietary addiction and the resulting obesity involves the elimination of the highly processed foods that can fool the satiety systems of the brain and result in the artificial stimulation of the pleasure inducing neuro chemical dopamine. The most effective way to lose weight and regain health is to adopt a health promoting diet derived from abundant quantities of fresh fruits and vegetables, and the variable addition of raw nuts and seeds, minimally processed starchy vegetables, (including potatoes, yams, squashes, etc.), whole grains (brown rice, millet, quinoa, but NOT flour products), and beans (such as lentils, peas, etc.). The elimination or severe limitation of all animal products is also recommended for health reasons not necessarily related to the pleasure trap. This type of health promoting diet, in conjunction with appropriate sleep and exercise, will result in the normalization of weight.
Whole plant based foods are a wonderful thing when used for nourishment and they can (and should be) delicious and satisfying. It’s when we slice and dice and add fat, salt and sugar that we turn it into an addictive drug.
