For years I denied there was such a thing as food addiction. I admitted to a compulsion to overeating but could not attribute my problem to a single substance.

About 4 months ago I gave up added sugar and processed grains (as much as possible). I found that cravings went away and I could live and eat like a normal person.

Now as I continue to do this I feel I am a sugar addict and have to act accordingly to continue to eat as a normal person. Sugar is the substance that I never thought I was addicted to. Now I think of sugar like a recovering crack addict would look at crack.

I've never been addicted to drugs or alcohol but yeah, I think I am addicted to certain foods. I can't have them in my house or I will binge on them until they are gone.

when my food choices were poor and loaded with starches/fats/sugars...I had intense cravings. I did feel addicted to certain foods...particularly bread.
With a healthy nutritionally dense diet...those cravings are gone, along with a taste for very sweet sugary foods.

I've often felt the same way. I especially can't walk past chocolate without buying some. I try to keep the junk food out of the house but when I'm shopping the hand reaches out and it somehow ends up in the cart. Then I have to eat it to get rid of it. I just started with sparks and I always feel very deprived if I cut out favorite foods so I'm just working on proper portions for now. Staying within the allotted calorie range. I figure I'll work on improving my food choices later.

I dare say that if we weren't addicted, we wouldn't be using SparkPeople.

I am addicted to food. I happily admit it because as long as it is the open I can't hide. My addiction behaves exactly like my alcoholism and drug addictions use to. I have been sober and drug free for 7 years. I quit the booze and the drugs and turned to food. It has taken 7 years for me to admit i am a food addict. I was writing my food history and I realized that the behaviors and thoughts and feelings I had when I was drinking and using are the same as when I use food.
If any of you feel the same way let me know. I want to know if I am alone.

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.
Romans 12:1-3
