The Stages of Food Addiction: Get Off the Bus Now!
Like other addictions, food addiction is a chronic and progressive disease. Get off the bus before it reaches its destination – death!
Early stage: Food addicts notice that they have a special attachment to food. It is their ‘best friend’.
Middle Stage: Food addicts know they have a problem with food and are trying to control themselves with dieting, medication, yoga, and therapy. They often have sought out professional help by this time.
Late Stage: Food addicts know by this time that they have no control over their eating. They often have diabetes, hypertension, and severe depression and are morbidly obese. If the disease continues, they typically die of these conditions.
