Food Addiction Program Featuring Dr. Robert Lustig, Michael Prager, Etc. Planned

Robert H. Lustig, M.D., whose YouTube video, Sugar: The Bitter Truth, hit viral, and Michael Prager, author of the exciting book, Fat Boy, Thin Man, are among the fascinating experts I’ll have the pleasure of meeting and listening to in an exciting program about food addiction at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco next week.

Stay tuned for some compelling points that you’ll get from these amazing speakers.

These are the experts lined up.

Michael Prager, Author, Fat Boy Thin Man
Nicole Avena, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, University of Florida
Eric Stice, Ph.D., Senior Research Scientist, Oregon Research Institute
Dr. Vera Ingrid Tarman, MD., MSc., FCEP, CASAM, Medical Director, Renascent
Elissa Epel, Ph.D., Associate Professor, UCSF Department of Psychiatry
Robert H. Lustig, M.D., Professor of Pediatrics, in the Division of Endocrinology at UCSF

Now read the enticing description:

Addiction is about brains, not just about behaviors. We all have the brain reward circuitry that makes food rewarding; it’s a survival mechanism. In a healthy brain, these rewards have feedback mechanisms for satiety or “‘enough.” For some, the circuitry becomes dysfunctional such that the message becomes “more.” Michael Prager, author of Fat Boy Thin Man, will begin the discussion telling his very personal story of recognizing and then seeking treatment for his food addiction. Leading researchers and clinicians will discuss many aspects of this important topic.

"I blew my diet! Now what?" Does that sound like you? After your divorce, the death of a loved one or another trying time, did your eating get out of control for weeks, months or even years? Most of us have been there. Now I'm here to help you Rebound After Relapse™. Best of all, I totally "get" what it feels like to "lose" your willpower. That's because after my Mom died, I blew my diet bigtime for months, overate carbs and packed on 21 pounds -- this after eating cleanly for 14 years and even becoming the bestselling author of Sugar Shock (Berkley Books) and Beyond Sugar Shock (Hay House). Stay tuned for my new, "I Blew My Diet! Now What?" Podcast and book.

  1. Superb site you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any forums that cover the same topics discussed here?
    I’d really like to be a part of online community
    where I can get advice from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest.

    If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
    Many thanks!

    • Hello Frank, is it?

      Funny that you should ask.

      I’ll be forming a Crush Your Cravings Course to offer this kind of support, information, etc.

      Then, later on, if people choose, they’ll be able to join a community, too. Please be patient though. I’m knee deep into planning lots of exciting ways to help people, but it takes a lot of work and research.
