Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast. Dr. Vera Tarman is a leading expert on food addiction and—through her writings, speaking, and workshops—has been helping patients overcome their addictions to sugar and processed food for many years. She is the author of several books on the topic of food addiction and hosts her own podcast in which she talks with expert guests about health, nutrition, and addiction.
In this episode, Brian, Tro, and Vera discuss why the idea of food addiction has been so slow to catch on in the medical industry, the need for clinical research on food addiction, the relationship between stress and weight gain, the problem of hyper-palatable foods, whether there is any benefit in using sweeteners instead of sugar to help kick a sugar addiction, how to find support for your addiction recovery journey, and whether moderation is possible for true addicts.
