Medical doctor and addictions recovery specialist Dr. Vera Tarman is our guest today in Episode 902 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
The concept of addiction is abundantly real in the minds of most people when it comes to drugs, alcohol and tobacco. But for some reason many people have a difficult time grasping that there could be any such thing as food addiction. For Dr. Vera Tarman, MD, she has seen this struggle firsthand in so many patients and has been seeking to help them overcome their strong desires for consuming refined carbohydrates. Her website "Addictions Unplugged" has been a resource of encouragement for many years as we previously shared an interview with Dr. Tarman in Episode 607. Now she's back in 2014 with a new book sharing her wisdom and knowledge about this subject entitled Food Junkies: The Truth About Food Addiction.
Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Varman discuss how to know if you're a food addict, whether food addiction is recognized as a disease, why carbohydrates are the key focus of battling food addiction, how some people never get rid of the disordered eating behaviors even after weight loss, and much more! If you or someone you know has trouble with food addiction, then this is a must-listen podcast.
