Food addiction is a real disorder that affects more people than you may realize. People suffering from this disorder think about food constantly, have trouble stopping themselves from eating, and may often binge large quantities of food at one time. Beating a food addiction isn’t always easy but there are steps you can take to conquer your unhealthy desire for food.Recognizing the ProblemIf you are concerned about your eating habits but uncertain if you have a food addiction you can take a self-assessment test that will help you understand your relationship to food. If you feel that you do have a food addiction talk to your doctor. Process of EliminationTake a look at the foods you eat and gradually eliminate items that are high in sugar, saturated fat and sodium. Little by little your body will stop craving these food items so often. Add healthier foods to you diet like fresh fruit and vegetables.Portion ControlIf you are used to eating a large quantity of food at one sitting, start to reduce the size of your portions. This way your body will begin to stop expecting so much food and you will be able to assess your true level of hunger.Non-food RewardsTreat yourself for making progress with your addiction recovery, but not with food. Instead buy yourself a new outfit or take a mini-vacation.
