Looking For Help With Food Addiction In Hampshire?

Christmas time can be a difficult time if you suffer from compulsive overeating. From chocolate treats to jars of sweets, even those with normal eating habits overindulge in December.

Food addiction is one of the most difficult habits to recover from, because we’re surrounded by tempting food every day. A healthy appetite for food isn’t the problem; it’s when overeating leads to obesity, health problems and feelings of shame, guilt and depression.

Food addiction is often known as a psychological compulsion, and falls under the category of a ‘behavioural addiction’. It is often a way to compensate for something that’s missing, and is therefore very much linked to our emotions.

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.
