Food Addiction Recovery

I believe I was (am?)  addicted to salt, sugar and excess fat. I fought it by giving them up entirely for one year.

Although I didn’t use Dr. Fuhrman’s recovery program, his book The End of Dieting was definitely a strong influence.

Here are two more books that helped me to understand the nature of my addiction.

If you’re struggling, and you need help, take a look at Dr. Fuhrman’s Food Addiction Recovery ProgramIt provides professional counseling and medical  guidance.

  2. I have given up salt, sugar and oil for life, well at least for 5 years so far. It has made a positive difference in my health, my weight and my life. It was not difficult to give up oil, but the salt and sugar were a challenge. Now that I have learned about herbs and spices (still learning), I do not miss salt, as my home cooked meals have much more flavors than ever before. I still love sweets but do not use maple syrup, agave or artificial sweeteners.I do use dried fruits in some recipes. It took a while, but my taste buds adapted and now even fruit tastes very sweet. I can even detect sweetness in some of the starchy vegetables.
