Overeating, binge eating, obesity, anorexia, and bulimia: Food Junkies tackles the complex, poorly understood issue of food addiction from the perspectives of a medical researcher and dozens of survivors. What exactly is food addiction? 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 ó to say nothing of gaining support and advice ó remains a frustrating battle.

Built around the experiences of people suffering and recovering from food addictions, Food Junkies offers practical information grounded in medical science, while putting a face to the problems of food addiction. It is meant to be a knowledgeable and friendly guide on the road to food serenity.

Reviews and Endorsements:

For all those who have struggled with weight loss and failed, here is a wise book that applies the addiction model to food. Tarman tackles the neurobiology of pleasure, the epidemic of obesity and makes sense of both. With a no-nonsense approach, Tarman offers a thoughtful, groundbreaking exploration of a subject that plagues the majority of readers.

Ann Dowsett Johnston, author of the bestselling Drink: The Intimate Relationship Between Women and Alcohol

Are you one of those people who thinks food addiction isn't real? Then you might be what Dr. Vera Tarman describes in her new book as a Food Junkie! I was addicted to sugar and other processed carbohydrates over a decade ago and found my way back to health and recovery thanks to some basic lifestyle changes that made me whole again. Dr. Tarman walks you through all the necessary steps to make that happen for you too. Addiction is real, but it's not inevitable. Grab back control of your health NOW!"

Jimmy Moore, author of Cholesterol Clarity and Keto Clarity and creator of the Liviní the Vida Low Carb blog: www.livinlavidalowcarb.com/blog
