Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast. David Avram Wolfe MS, RD, LDN, FAC, SUGAR is a Food Addiction Counselor, Sugar Addiction Coach and a Registered Dietitian. He has degrees in Culinary Arts and Culinary Nutrition as well as a Masters degree in Nutrition.

In our discussion with David, we discuss the nature and signs of food addiction, the shame that comes from being addicted and feeling powerless, how addiction tends to ‘transfer’ from one substance to another when a person is making an effort to recover, treating the addictive tendency itself versus treating addiction to a particular substance, the relationship between stress, anxiety, and falling off the wagon, and the importance of community and family support in recovery.

Additionally, we discuss the brain’s amazing ability to rationalize any self-destructive decision, the power of hope and feeling free, the idea of hunger versus desire, and how LowCarb works wonders for recovering from food addiction.
