REYKJAVIK, Iceland - June 19, 2023 - PRLog -- After recovering from food addiction herself by maintaining a 100-lb weight loss for more than 12 years, Dr. Tarman is on the front lines in presenting the message about the problem of food addiction and recovery solutions through her advocacy work, her books, Food Junkies: Recovery From Food Addiction and her podcast, Food Junkies.

"Food addiction is a biological, psychological phenomenon," states Dr. Tarman. "It's not about willpower. It's not because you're a pig and you don't know how to stop. It's about recognizing that something has taken over — remember the definition of addiction is you can't stop even if you want to."

Dr. Tarman cites the statistics that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that by the year 2030, 84% of the U.S. population will be overweight and 42% will be obese.

Dr. Tarman is the author of "Food Junkies: The Truth About Food Addiction", and "Food Junkies: Recovery from Food Addiction", is on the faculty of the INFACT School and is an internationally renowned expert on sugar and food addiction and knows recovery is possible. Dr. Vera Tarman is the Medical Director of Renascent, one of Canada's largest treatment centers for substance abuse where she works as an addiction specialist.
