Find Food Help In Guildford

Food is one of life’s greatest pleasure. That is, as long as our eating habits aren’t out of control. Unfortunately, obesity is one of the biggest growing problems in the western world. In the UK alone over 32 million people are overweight. More than a third of children are also overweight once they leave primary school. These are scary statistics and make one wonder what’s gone wrong.

With overeating, it’s not so much the food itself, as the process of eating which is addictive.

In this regard it’s what’s known as a psychological compulsion. It also falls under the category of a behavioural addiction. Overeating is often a way to compensate for something that’s missing, and is draining emotionally, mentally and physically.

Bulimia is another way of using food to deal with stress or anxiety. Like over-eating it causes the sufferer to feel guilt and shame afterwards.

At Addiction Care you’ll find help with both over-eating and bulimia. Based in Guildford, we can help you regain confidence and self-esteem, along with a healthy lifestyle. We do this by helping you gain control over the situation and by using food plans and expert therapy.
