Food Addiction is Real, and we want to help!

Food Addiction is Real, and we want to help!

I remember being on a TV show about 15 years ago, alongside a guest who was from Overeaters Anonymous (OA).

My brand-new book, “Simply…Woman! The 12-Week BODY-MIND-SOUL Total Transformation Program” had just been released and was doing incredibly well.

I had lost a bunch of weight after gaining an excessive amount during my pregnancy, and I was showing women how they too could do the same. I was feeling incredibly empowered and healthy!

The woman sitting beside me from OA was well over 300 pounds and wearing a disguise. She sat in misery explaining how she was addicted to food and quoted from her 12-Step program that she was ‘powerless’ to her addiction.

I told her that if she knew who she really was and how powerful she really was — deep down inside — she could take back her health and happiness. She insisted she was addicted, had a disease, and was powerless.

It made me very sad. And sad that this was the message the viewers were hearing.

Instead, I insisted that food is one of our most basic needs . . . And that, yes, for some people, certain foods trigger overwhelming ‘feel-good brain chemicals’ that overtake their brain’s reward pathway. And they can’t stop eating. Literally.

However, by understanding which foods hijack your brain, you can take back your power.

I think it is time that we all learned how the food industry has manipulated our brains and devastated our bodies…. creating an epidemic of overweight addicted people.

I have partnered with Sandra Elia, one of the world’s first Certified Food Addiction Counselors and the Vice Chair for the Toronto Chapter of the Canadian Obesity Network!
