Mental Health at Work
What this problem is
A food addiction is eating more food than you actually need and usually masks an underlying emotional problem.
While food is necessary for health and life, many of us have built an emotional dependence on eating.
Because of this dependence, the boundaries between healthy eating and addictive behaviour can become blurred.
Indeed whether or not a person can truly be addicted to food is a matter of ‘hot debate’.
Overcoming a food addiction is about changing the way you think and your attitude towards food, rather than changing your diet.
