Are you always hungry? Are there certain foods that you can’t stop eating after you consume the first serving? Are you sick of tired of overeating? Do you keep gaining weight because of your food addiction? Have you worked on overcoming food addiction in the past yet always failed?
Food addiction in many ways is very similar to binge eating where one eats large amounts of food in a very short period of time. There are several food addiction treatments however most of them revolve around very similar concepts which I will discuss in this article.

Lastly, a very important step to overcoming food addiction is increasing your awareness. One way to do that is through journaling. Journal about your day, your feelings, your thoughts and your eating. As you journal you’ll be able to reflect on your own life, your choices, and your eating. You’ll start seeing the cause and effect relationships between your emotions or thoughts and overeating. You’ll start seeing how feeling a lot of stress really can encourage you to engage in overeating. You’ll start seeing how thinking negative thoughts and being tough on yourself will keep you stuck in your food addiction recovery efforts without making any progress.
Recovery from food addiction is a very worthy goal. While the journey might seem tough in the beginning it will get easier. As you build healthier eating habits, work on managing your thoughts and emotions, your food addiction recovery will take care of itself.
You might also be wondering what about fast food addiction or junk food addiction? Well they aren’t any different than any other kind of food addiction. You see it’s not really about the food you are addicted to rather why you are addicted to it. Often the reasons behind different food addictions are the same and therefore food addiction treatment works well in all cases.
