Food Addiction and Binge Eating Disorder Treatment at Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment CenterCan we actually be addicted to food, like someone becomes addicted to cocaine? Is that possible with just certain foods, like being addicted to sugar…or could we be addicted to any food? Or, do we binge eat because we developed habits that just feel like a food addiction? Finally, an expert helps us make sense of these questions and the answers may surprise you! Join Ellen Shuman and Dr. Kim Dennis, a board-certified psychiatrist who specializes in eating disorder treatment and addiction recovery, for a look at the latest research and treatment strategies for binge eaters who feel they have a food addiction.

Mary Boggiano

What do we know about what causes people to binge eat?” Liking and wanting”, “reward and craving” drive binge eating.

Did you know dieting can super-sensitize us to want to binge eat? Everyone says, “Stop dieting”. Here’s the science that proves why that’s so important. Learn what we know about genetic markers than may make one vulnerable to binge eating.

Listen in as Dr. Mary Boggiano, one of the top researchers in the field of binge eating and the brain; the behavioral neuroscience that underlies abnormal eating behavior, also tells us about people who binge eat but have not had a history of dieting. She’ll describes the role of anxiety and depression in binge eating and the four motives that have been determined to drive binge eating.

Ever make funny mixes of food with foods that are not normally eaten together; that you’d be ashamed for anyone else to see? If so, you’re not alone. It’s called “concocting”. We’ve discovered it’s common in people who binge eat? We’ll share details of a new study Dr. Boggiano and I co-authored that has just been published in the International Journal of Eating Disorders.

Emotional overeating, dieting…even if we don’t diet to lose weight, the standard American lifestyle leaves many of us poorly nourished and stressed out. The result is that many of us end up with physical ailments, not the least of which are digestive disturbances and often chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation is thought to be at the root of most of the chronic diseases affecting Americans today.

Join A Weigh Out’s Ellen Shuman and guest Marsha Hudnall, MS, RD, a functional nutritionist and owner of Green Mountain at Fox Run and, for a look at Functional Medicine; the art and science of looking beneath the surface to discover the root causes of physical problems. We’ll explore our physical balance’s impact on emotional balance. When our bodies get out of balance, it can drive emotional states that send us to food. Hudnall says clearing up the physical problems can have a tremendous impact on clearing up emotional problems.

In her research lab, Dr. Mary Boggiano has discovered there are binge-prone rats and binge-resistant rats. Might this explain why you binge and other people do not?

Are some of us more susceptible to food cues in the environment than others?

What are we learning about the impact of food restriction (dieting) and stress on binge eating? Might the combination of the two change the brain’s sensitivity to high sugar-high fat foods, increasing the reward we get when we eat them? Could that be one reason why it’s so hard to stop bingeing?

Join us for an excited glimpse into the mind and research of one of the world’s top scientist in the field of binge eating.
Learn what she’s discovered in her lab about the biology and physiology of binge eating.
