Is it possible that when we talk about Food Addiction that we can actually discuss the addiction and not just suggest that people diet and keep a food diary? Food Addiction is about an emotional connection to food. I found it very triggering that there was such a high focus on telling people to diet and discussing people's diets instead of discussing the addiction. It's like telling an alcoholic that they just need to stop when they have had enough. Or telling a smoker to just stop buying cigarettes. It does nothing to address the actual addiction to food.

I would appreciate this.

Addiction is more complicated then just talking about diets, journals, cigarettes, and alcohol. It's social, motivational, emotional and genetic factors all create an addiction experience. An addictive substance ALONE does not create addiction.

Last night we had a nice, though small, conversation about the Theoretical Model of Change and the psychology of addiction. It was very informative.

That was probably a very interesting conversation seeing as there are a few models and theories about addiction. The papers we had to write in college made for great discussions. So, yes they can be very informative
