Counseling for Food Addiction

Food Addiction is the #1 Addiction in the U.S.

Ask anyone about substance addiction and they’ll likely think about drugs and alcohol. Alcohol and drug addiction is very problematic, but food addiction in the U.S. is completely out of control.

Most people don’t consider food to be an addiction. However, food is the most misused and abused substance today.

In fact, food is America’s #1 drug of choice!

Here are some of the consequences as a result of our relationship with food in the U.S.:

  • 67% of adults are overweight.
  • 33% of adults are obese.
  • Approximately 12.4% of children age 2 to 5 and 17% of children age 6 to 11 are overweight
  • 17.6% of adolescents (age 12 to 19) are overweight
  • Obesity is associated with over 112,000 excess deaths due to cardiovascular disease, over 15,000 excess deaths due to cancer, and over 35,000 excess deaths due to non-cancer, non-cardiovascular disease causes per year, relative to healthy-weight individuals

Food addiction is causing people to eat themselves to death!

However, like all addiction treatment, there are alternative choices and there are many ways to eat in a balanced, enjoyable and healthy manner.

If you feel like you’re out of control with your eating patterns and you’d like to find healthier ways of eating, then I invite you to call me.
