Our New York Times bestselling expert, Dr. Pam Peeke, has a fantastic new blog post here:

Food & Addiction: Hand Over the Chocolate & Nobody Gets Hurt

Check out the great photo of Dr. Peeke on the Katie promoting her new book, The Hunger Fix: The Three-Stage Detox and Recovery Plan for Overeating and Food Addiction, on the Katie Couric show. Nice arms Dr. Peeke! I'm going to have to go back and read your blog post Bye Bye Batwings to work on my upper limbs!

Dr. Peeke writes "Food addiction is real". Do you agree? What food addiction challenges have you faced?

Yes I agree that you can be addicted to some foods .
I had a problem with Icecream and other sweets but mainly icecream / I am Happy to say I had only 1 icecream serveing this past summer , and thats almost 10 years after I started my journey .. to better nutrition . You cn get over them it isn;t easy but through practice and determination they can be overcome. the main thing is to stop buying the food you are addicted to .

as for me growing up we were poor, so poor that us kids would go out and eat the grass in our yard. we ate nuts berries and anything we could find to survive. so now i`m scared not to have tons of food in my house. if it starts to get low i need to stock up or i`ll eat all the time afraid i`ll run out. maletta

Hi twilight
so you have to learn portion control because those things are pretty healthy items that cannot be eliminated.You can start by buying smaller potatoes and I like to steam potatoes the little red ones . I also had to cut back on my potato consumtion ..
I eat lots of green vegies still though they are also steamed
get a food scale to get a better idea of how much your are eating then cut back accoringly .. If you are trying to remove weight that is?
