GENRE: Non-Fiction, self-help

BLURB:

Is it possible to be addicted to food? When does indulging in ‘comfort’ food become substance abuse? Is it possible that there is more than a lack of will power at work when someone can’t stop eating? In Food Junkies, Vera Tarman and Phil Werdell explain what is – and isn’t – food addiction, tackling this complex and poorly understood problem through the stories of many survivors and from the perspectives of medical researchers/practitioners. They break down the science behind the research so that anyone can understand it, and take a fresh look at obesity, overeating, binge eating, anorexia and bulimia. For people struggling with these issues — and their families — recognizing the condition is the first step to gaining the kind of support and advice they need.

Food Junkies (finalist in the 2016 Voice Arts Awards) offers hope and guidance. Read by Lisa Bunting, according to one audible customer review, her “calming voice assists with decreasing the shame so often found with addiction and can open the listener up to actually hearing,” while another noted the audiobook version “brought the science to life in a different way than the book. It made it even more real as one can’t ‘skim’ or ‘rush’ through the life-changing content.”
