Am I a food addict?
William Anderson Says...
Yes, you have a food addiction. Yes, it is related to stress. Yes, you have a stress problem that leads to food for coping. Yes, it is important to learn more about it.
Your big problem, that "Whenever I try to diet I get really irritable and stressed out and when I am stressed I always can’t control my eating" is the problem all us food addicts have. It is not unusual. This is the problem that food addiction is.
You need to learn more. Read all my articles here at Choosehelp.com. Read everything at my website The Anderson Method Website , and all the articles listed in the Table of Contents at the bottom right corner of the pages. Read my book, The Anderson Method. Google "Overeaters Anonymous", "Food Addicts Anonymous", "Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous", and read everything you find there.
To make it easiest, start with my book. I wrote it as a single source to teach what your problem is and how to address it.
After you've read my book and as much of the other stuff as you can, write back and let me know how you're doing and what you're thinking. I'll help in the best way I can.
