r Mark Hyman aunthor of Ultra Metabolism says " We know that foods with a high glycemic index make people store belly fat, trigger hidden fires of inflammation in the body, and give you a fatty liver leading the whole cascade of obesity, pre-diabetes and diabetes. Not only does wheat contain super starch and super gluten – making it super fattening and super inflammatory, but it also contains a super drug that makes you crazy, hungry and addicted.

you are NOT addicted to food... you are addicted to the way food makes you feel or a memory associated with it.
Often times we eat because we are bored (something to do), to procrastinate (after I eat this), to celebrate (Let them eat cake!), when we are stressed (chocolate), when we are PMSing (really another type of stress), etc.
We eat because we remember... for instance, most people have happy memories associated with cake (birthdays) and chocolate (boxes of candy)...
Sometimes eating can be self-hating too... to go against someone who criticized (like the mother that berates her overweight daughter or the husband who has stopped touching his wife).
You just have to figure out why and work from there. Like any addiction, there is a cause. Addiction is a symptom.
Every time I want a snack, I will go into the Kitchen, look at what it is I am craving and remind myself ..."Food is fuel. Am I hungry? Do I need fuel? Or am I impulse eating"? 99% of the time, it is an impulse. Call it what it is, walk away and feel proud about your decision...it is addicting.
