Food Addiction Part 2: The Body Knows
Do you suspect you have problems around your eating? Some of the following may be true.
- Do you think about the next time you are going to eat and plan with anticipation?
- Do you often eat more than you intend?
- Do you feel guilty & ashamed after you eat?
- Do you make excuses about your eating?
- Do you set 'rules' around your food but repeatedly fail in the long-term?
- Do you often eat in isolation?
- Are you ashamed of how much eating impacts your life?
- Have you given up trying to control your food and eating?
Most of us have tried many diets...they end up not working for any sustainable length of time. You are not alone, and it’s not your fault. Understanding food addiction, what it is, and how it can impact us complicating our lipedema can be life-changing.
