Editorial Reviews

Review

Are you one of those people who thinks food addiction isn't real? Then you might be what Dr. Vera Tarman describes in her new book as a Food Junkie! I was addicted to sugar and other processed carbohydrates over a decade ago and found my way back to health and recovery thanks to some basic lifestyle changes that made me whole again. Dr. Tarman walks you through all the necessary steps to make that happen for you too. Addiction is real, but it's not inevitable. Grab back control of your health NOW! (Jimmy Moore, author of Cholesterol Clarity and Keto Clarity)

For all those who have struggled with weight loss and failed, here is a wise book that applies the addiction model to food. Tarman tackles the neurobiology of pleasure and the epidemic of obesity, and makes sense of both. With a no-nonsense approach, Tarman offers a thoughtful, groundbreaking exploration of a subject that plagues the majority of readers. (Ann Dowsett Johnston, author of Drink: The Intimate Relationship Between Women and Alcohol)
