Food Addiction: Retraining Your Brain To Eat Healthy

Why are so many of us hopelessly addicted to fatty and sugary foods that we know are bad for us? Why do we never get the same cravings for fruit, vegetables or brown rice that we do for chocolate, crisps and chips? LEARN MORE

Surviving Thanksgiving

Each year, as the holidays approach, we go into a panic. How will I survive Thanksgiving?  There is the thought of spending time with family, the pressure of creating a perfect holiday meal, and the guilt over the 51 million turkeys that will sacrifice their lives for the occasion. But amidst all of these other pressing concerns, there is one that stands out above the rest in the national panic: How will I stick to my diet? My advice is simple. Don’t. LEARN MORE

Adolescent Girls and ‘Not-Quite’ Eating Disorders

These girls, aged 12 to 15, never crossed the line into fulleating disorders. In fact, they became healthy young women with normal-enough eating. Siena switched from a vegetarian diet to a gluten-free one, to one that involved lots of raw vegetables. Bella rarely ate much in front of her friends, though her weight tended to run a little higher than one might expect. Meagan dieted on and off, though never with much persistence. Caroline obsessed about being “fat” so often that her friends began to eye-roll.Kendra went through a phase of only eating “healthy” foods, fearing sweets and junk. LEARN MORE

Added Sugars Abundant in US Diets, Link to Death – Most U.S. adults are eating too much sugar and that’s linked to an increased risk of dying from heart disease, according to a new government study. Learn more.

Women Winning Their War on Eating Disorders

The Argument for Orthorexia to be Classfied as an Official Eating Disorder –  Most of us will be aware of anorexia and bulimia but how about orthorexia nervosa? I suspect many will be oblivious to the illness – not heard of it even, let alone know what it is. Learn More.

Binge Eating: Most Common Eating Disorder in US Garners More Attention – Binge eating disorder (BED) is the most common eating disorder in the United States, affecting 3.5 percent of women and 2 percent of men, according to the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA). Despite its prevalence, BED was only added to the fifth edition of the American Psychiatric Associations’ Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) in May 2013 – a move that has now prompted both researchers and physicians to pay more attention to the illness. Learn More.

Being Overweight in Kindergarten Sets Stage for Later Obesity – Children who are overweight when they start school are far more likely to be obese by the time they become teenagers, according to a new study of nearly 8,000 children. Learn More.

Obesity Down for American Teens, Except in Low-Income Families – A new study shows that teen obesity is on the decline in America – but not for low-income youths. Are the rich getting thinner and the poor getting fatter? Lack of exercise opportunities appears to be part of the problem. Learn More.

Food Addicts are  Like Drug Addicts, Study Finds – Food addiction, a new study in the journal Appetite suggests, may have more to do with your personality than with your willpower. The authors found that food addicts often have the same impulsive personality traits that predispose people to abuse drugs and alcohol. Learn More.

Adolescents’ Salt Intake Correlates with Obesity, Inflammation – Most adolescents consume as much salt as adults — some more than twice the recommended daily allowance — and that high sodium intake correlates with fatness and inflammation regardless of how many calories they consume, researchers report.

Organic Food and Farm Groups ask Obama to Require GMO Food Labels –  Four U.S. lawmakers joined with more than 200 food companies, organic farming groups, health and environment organizations and other groups on Thursday to urge President Barack Obama to require manufacturers to label food products that contain genetically engineered ingredients. Learn More.

Grape Nuts is Now Non-GMO Verified – Great News! Iconic Grape Nuts Cereal from Post foods is now non-GMO verified. Earlier this month, we learned that General Mills was removing genetically modified ingredients from their Cheerios Original product. Post is doing the same, but taking it one step further by using an external third party to verify their product is indeed free of GMOs. Many consumers complained about Cheerios not going through the third party verification process. Learn More.

Why Letting Kids Serve Themselves May Be Worth the Mess – The U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends that parents let kids as young as 2 years old serve themselves at home. And in 2011, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics advised that child care providers should serve meals “family-style” — present kids with a few different dishes and allow them to take what they want. Why? Because there’s now research showing that when kids are allowed to serve themselves, they’re less likely to overeat. They also tend to be more open to trying different kinds of foods. Learn More.

Cash or Credit? How Kids Pay for School Lunch Matters for Health – Compared with kids who use cash in school cafeterias, kids who use debit cards seem to make more unhealthful eating choices, finds Brian Wansink, a behavioral economist at Cornell University. Learn More.

Sugar Addiction: It May Be Very Real –  Scientists and doctors have been coming to the conclusion that sugar, even in relatively small but consistent amounts, may not be healthy for us. In the last few years, the consensus has been leaning toward the idea that refined sugar may be affecting our brains and bodies in negative ways. Carbohydrates convert to sugar. Diets with high amounts of carbs and added sugar can cause changes in our brain and behavior. Overeating these foods can resemble addiction, claims Nicole Avena, a neuroscientist from Columbia University. Learn More.

Hunger Pains: Binge-eating disorder linked to lifelong impairments in 12-country study – Binge-eating disorder, designated only months ago by the American Psychiatric Association as a diagnosis in its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, is associated with substantial lifelong impairments comparable to those of bulimia nervosa, according to a World Health Organization study based on community epidemiological surveys conducted in 12 nations worldwide.

GMO Label Initiatives: 3 Things Washington is Doing Better than California Did – Will Washington be the first state to mandate GMO Labeling? The state’s ballot initiative 522 is going to the people in November’s elections. The measure would require the labeling of genetically modified foods such as those containing corn and soy, and GMO salmon. Meat products from animals that were raised on non-GMO feed will be exempt though. Read More.

Obesity, Addiction, and Personalized Medicine: Future Treatment for Obesity Will be Individualized and Based on Cause –  Dr. Mark Gold, chair of Psychiatry at the University of Florida, and his colleagues have championed the concept that certain eating behaviors have characteristics that are similar to addictive behaviors. In fact, they suggest that some types of food can be addictive in specific individuals and that these foods influence the same brain systems that are usurped and re-programmed by addictive drugs. Dr. Gold and others have studied obesity in animals and humans and have generated data that support this concept. But does this mean that everyone who is obese is addicted to food? This seems unlikely. In fact, Dr. Gold and colleagues are not suggesting that all obese people are food addicts. Rather, they see food addiction as one of several causes for obesity. Read More.
