Food Addiction Recovery

It’s hard to believe that addictions can center on food. Obesity causes severe physical and emotional repercussions.

Food is about a need to stuff feelings or a need to subconsciously protect oneself with false layers of security.

Eating disorders like anorexia, bulimia, compulsive overeating or binge eating can all lead to fatal illnesses. Food can be a way to show love to the body or punish it through poor nourishment.

Most all food addictions result from abuse issues and other childhood traumas, low-self esteem, and often uncontrollable life situations.

Food Addiction Treatment

Our Food Addiction Treatment Action Plan

Struggling with any type of eating disorder or food addiction can be devastating and, in some cases, even life-threatening. If you are currently struggling with a form of an eating disorder or you simply want to know more to help a loved one, understanding the various types of eating disorders and food addiction treatment options can help you to move forward with your life, regardless of your current situation.

Understanding the different eating disorders that are most common today can give you more insight into symptoms, treatment methods available and the short- and long-term effects each disorder can have on the patient who is suffering along with surrounding family and friends.

Types of Food Addiction Disorders

There are multiple eating disorders that can affect both men and women of all ages. The most common eating disorders include bulimia, anorexia, and binge or compulsive eating disorders, as well. Eating disorders are not always easily identifiable, so it is important to understand the various characteristics that come along with each if you are trying to help cope yourself or if you want to help a loved one.

Many eating disorders stem from negative thoughts, emotions and memories in relation to food or the sufferer’s own surroundings and life situations. Overcoming any type of eating disorder requires understanding and compassion from those around the sufferer to defeat the battle and move on with life.

Anorexia

Anorexia, also known as anorexia nervosa, is an eating disorder in which sufferers believe they are “too heavy,” “overweight” or “fat,” causing them to refuse eating a sufficient amount of food each day even to maintain their natural body weight.

Instead, many patients who are suffering from anorexia typically starve their bodies from the food and nutrients it needs. In severe cases, patients may become weakened and unable to perform traditional daily tasks and activities, and this can ultimately lead to death or permanent damage to the body’s internal organs.

Bulimia

Bulimia is an eating disorder that is similar to anorexia, but the symptoms are slightly different and, for the body, a bit more intense. A person who is suffering from bulimia often eats on a normal schedule or with family and friends on a regular basis.

However, the sufferer of bulimia is constantly plagued and overwhelmed with negative thoughts about food and about gaining weight, so he or she will immediately purge or attempt to get rid of the food that has been eaten before it is digested. Many patients who have been diagnosed with bulimia claim purging is their method of choice to help with ridding food that has recently been eaten.

Although it is most common to “binge and purge” for those with bulimia nervosa, there are also “non-purging” patients who instead, push their bodies through intense exercise (oftentimes overdoing it) along with fasting and not eating at all for set periods of time.

Compulsive Eating Disorder

A compulsive eating disorder, also known as binge eating, is another disorder that can affect not only the sufferer, but family and friends around him or her who are unaware of the disorder and the mental anguish and physical harm it can be causing. Binge and compulsive eating can cause patients to eat abnormally large amounts of food in one sitting, whether or not they are truly hungry.

If you are suffering from compulsive eating disorder, you may find yourself eating until you are more than full, often feeling tired and overwhelmed after a meal. Eating alone in embarrassment and shame and gorging on foods to cope with emotional pain or feelings can also be symptoms of a compulsive eating disorder.

Compulsive eating can be a way to relieve stress for some and to cope with difficult struggles in life, but it can also cause the body harm by overindulging and eating too much. Binging can often leave the patient feeling depressed and saddened by the loss of control, which needs to be corrected as quickly as possible to avoid long-term depression, guilt and behavior that reflects negative emotions.

Food Addiction Recovery Options

Getting treatment for a food addiction or an eating disorder is possible with the help of local groups and medical professionals that specialize in the disorders themselves. It is first important to gather a support group of family and friends you can trust to talk about the disorder you believe you are overcoming or looking to beat. Having a support group that will help to keep you on track can help you overcome any type of addiction, whether it is avoiding food or indulging in it to cope with other matters in your life.

Food addiction recovery for eating disorders vary from patient to patient on an individual basis and highly depends on the mental state and attitude of the patient who is suffering with the eating disorder as well. Many times, psychotherapy and cognitive behavior therapy can be helpful for those who are struggling with understanding the benefits of food and nutrients and for those who are suffering with anorexia, bulimia and even binge or compulsive eating disorders.

Family therapy can also help to build a bigger support group for any patient suffering from an eating disorder. In more severe cases, medications may also be prescribed to help to keep food in the patient’s stomach, deliver nutrients or even to help with getting the patient’s moods and emotions under control, depending on each situation individually.

“I contacted TAP in 2010 in an attempt to help me get through my addiction to food of all things. While I thought it was stupid to think I could be addicted to food, they sympathized with me; they even helped me to find the program that would help me and my addiction.

Other places I called would only help people who were addicted to drugs, but TAP knew that even something like food can be a dangerous addiction.

When I got into my program, they helped me to get my life back in order; they helped me as a person, not just telling me to stop eating all the time.

I now live a healthy lifestyle where I do eat, but only three times a day instead of only once, all day long.”JJ, LOS ANGELES, CA
