Foods containing highly concentrated sugar, salt and fat—typical of the American diet—tend to drive a loss of self-control and frequent overeating. Research suggests that this occurs because these foods activate the reward centers of the brain, similar to addictive drugs like cocaine and heroin. In this webinar, Dr. Fuhrman explains the addictive properties of low-nutrient foods, and how the brain responds to these foods by creating the desire for more. He also gives advice on breaking the food addiction cycle, starting with a few good daily habits, and continues by discussing the importance of building positive self-esteem. This webinar is a guide to taking control of food addiction and living a healthier, happier, more successful life.
