Here at Eating Dependency, we feel it is also important to emphasize that food addiction is not actually caused by a lack of willpower. We understand that food dependency is an extremely hard cycle to break due to the dopamine signals that affect the biochemistry of the brain. We are here to work with you and alongside you – as you gain the right tools to gain control over your food dependency – in order to lead a healthy and nutritious lifestyle going forward.
Many people feel that weight loss can be obtained by simply eating less and exercising more. However, that is not the only way. Being able to understand the behaviors that cause overeating and managing daily stresses can help to retrain the functionality of your mind and body.
Not only do weight gain and undereating cause health problems, but they can also cause depression and increased anxiety in both children and adults. These symptoms can severely impact a person’s day to day life.
At Eating Dependency, we can help with motivation, setting goals, and helping you find solutions to your challenges. Healthy lifestyle choices will help to maintain a strong body and mind throughout your life.
