Food Addiction

Addiction to foodis a process addiction. It is not about eating, purging and dieting, but rather becomes a way to stuff down and ignore the painful emotions. Starving, overeating and purging of food induce changes in the brain and reduce painful emotions. Continuous abuse of »miraculous diets« and fantasy of a perfect body that everybody would admire and envy helps a person ignore painful feelings of inadequacy. The behavior induces changes in brain function and structure and becomes out of control, as well as dangerous and self-destructive. In spite of the severe consequences, the addicts find that they are unable to stop it.
