Exploring the Real Culprits in Food Addiction – Its Not Broccoli!

We will examine: the biological nature of food addiction with a discussion of the familial underpinnings; why an individual’s eating problems (overeating, undereating or eating and purging) are an addiction; how these behaviors are brain based (as evidenced by new brain imaging technologies). Discussions will include how blood sugar operates in the body and how/what to eat so that blood sugar levels are normalized, which then normalizes energy, mood, sleep, digestion, weight and brain chemistry.
