Food Addiction Counseling: Addictions Therapy Services


Food Addiction Counseling

Food has always been one of the biggest problems humans have had to face. A lot of the world’s population does not have an ample supply of food, leading to higher starvation and mortality rates in developing countries. In developed countries, the issue is the opposite: the general population is inundated with food choices and options. This accessibility and affordability has led to obesity rates being considered an epidemic in the US, thus making the need for food addiction counseling more relevant than ever.

The Problem

Several factors are causing food addiction problems in modern society. The most prominent of these is simple accessibility. It’s never been easier to get your hands on food, with supermarkets stocking their shelves with countless products and restaurants serving ever-growing portions. Prices are only getting lower on many products on sale in grocery stores, and value menu options are displayed at many fast food restaurants.

Alongside cheaper prices, the way food is prepared has changed significantly over the past few decades. Many food companies are manipulating chemistry and ingredients to make food more artificially favorable; additives such as MSG (monosodium glutamate) or high fructose corn syrup can trick your body into thinking something is far tastier than it is. Once you’ve eaten a lot of food like this, it can become much harder to enjoy less processed options while also causing cravings for the tastes you remember. The cycle of eating addiction is now beginning to form.

Solving The Problem

Unfortunately, it isn’t likely that society will solve the food addiction problem anytime soon. As more companies enter the market and learn from each other, foods that are processed, cheap, and accessible will be advertised everywhere. This means you have to take control of your addiction, and our food problem help can be a great way to make this easier.

By working with our therapists, you will be able to find ways to control the cravings you have for different foods. You can go to one-on-one sessions to create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your needs. We also offer family coaching to assist family members in helping you make the positive changes you desire. We’ll be there to ensure you don’t go through a relapse or eating binge as you embark upon this recovery process.

It’s important to remember that you’re the only one who can solve this problem for yourself. We can help and support you, but the real work will have to come from your end, and this means that you will need to have openness in how to change your perception of food. Food addiction can be difficult because, unlike drugs or alcohol, you need to eat to live; however, our support and advice will simplify the process, allowing you to learn healthy eating versus unhealthy eating.
