Why can't I stop eating? If, like millions of others, you often ask yourself this question, you may be addicted to food. The food you eat may be precisely what makes you crave more...and more. This straight-talking book puts the widespread problem of food addiction into clear perspective and points the way to a life free of the obsession with food. Debbie Danowski, whose food addiction nearly ruined her life, and Peter Lazaro combine forces to give readers a full understanding of this debilitating condition: its sources, patterns, consequences, and physiological underpinnings. Unlike fad diets and drugs with their side effects, hidden costs, and infamous failure rates, the program outlined in this book goes to the root cause of chronic overeating and puts the tools for a lifelong cure into the hands of anyone willing to accept responsibility for a healthy, happy future.

Principal author Debbie Danowski has maintained a 150-pound weight loss for 10 years by educating herself about specific food cravings, brain chemistry, hereditary factors, and the dynamics of addictive behavior. It's a personal story, but one grounded in first-rate research on how to manage compulsive eating. She approaches excessive eating as an addictive disorder and says that accepting this helps with the work of managing the moods, social situations, and other triggers that stimulate food cravings. Whether or not such a disease model of overeating fits your situation, this is a comprehensive look at food-intake issues that may lead to some fine-tuning of your own eating patterns. A worthwhile resource. T.W. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
