It takes a lot of courage to admit to an addiction. But sometimes we can overlook the idea of being addicted to food. Some of us might just think we're chronic overeaters before we admit to ourselves that we're just plain addicted. For some it might just be a case of overeating from time to time, but for other people it's a serious addiction that needs to be controlled. Today Pedram Shojai welcomes Susan Peirce Thompson back to The Health Bridge. She's the founder and CEO of Bright Line Eating Solutions, a company offering a road map to success for those ready to take a hard look at their relationship to food in order to drop weight and keep it off for good. Susan herself has had struggles with her own weight and body image in addition to being addicted to much more than food. Are some people cursed with an addictive personality? Are all foods addictive? What makes foods addictive? Are they similar to drugs in that way? How does one approach treating food addiction?
