Recovery From Food Addiction Success Story In the 8th Podcast Episode from The INFACT School
Food Addiction: The Problem and the Solution podcast showcases the story of a recovered food addict in new episode, I Never Imagined How Free Life Could Be
By: INFACT School
Sonja B. has maintained a 100-pound weight release through abstaining from eating sugar, wheat, processed foods and compulsive behaviors around food. At the age of 20, Sonja went into treatment for alcohol addiction and became sober. However, Sonja's use of food continued after becoming sober. She realized she was using food in the same way she used alcohol, as a substance which triggered a dopamine response in her brain leading to substance addiction.
Sonja has a message for fellow suffering food addicts, "Life can be different, and we do not need to use food to escape. We need not be imprisoned by our addiction and compulsive behaviors with food."
"Food Addiction: The Problem and The Solution" podcast is now available on all major podcast platforms, including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Amazon, Stitcher, and Google Podcasts. Listeners can also listen to the podcast on the INFACT School website and on the INFACT School Youtube channel.
