Nationally Certified Food Addictions Coach (NCFAC)

Student Testimonial:

food addictions
Food Addiction has been around for a very long time but it is just starting to gain momentum as an actual addiction, beyond overeating and eating disorders like anorexia and binge eating or bulimia.   In the Food Addiction Coaching Training and certification program, we will explain the differences between healthy and unhealthy relationships with food, how to spot a hidden eating disorder, what the difference between dieting and lifestyle choices are and how to deal with all of them as they present in your client. We address food addictions as both part of the addictive cycle and also independent of other addictions. Sometimes the person is truly addicted to food and this is their means of escape, other times they may be addicted to drugs or alcohol, shopping, sex, etc and when they let those bad behaviors go, food becomes the go-to addiction.  We see this a lot in 12 step programs when the person gives up drinking and gains 30 lbs. How many times have you heard a client say they ‘gained weight’ when they got sober? Well, that is trading one addiction for another.

Most of the 12 step programs offer coffee with sugar, cookies, candy bars and chain-smoking or vaping is the norm. What happens is they say “well at least you are not robbing people for a snickers bar.”   What they don’t address is how the sugar is addictive and the caffeine is as well. These clients become addicted to sugar and food and can’t stop eating garbage. When they eat well they feel, and when they eat poorly, they feel bad.

How do I know if I am a food addict? Do you crave sweets, carbs, and other processed foods? Do you eat when not hungry but emotional (sad, happy, angry, bored, etc)? Do you get headaches, anger, irritability if you cant get your Fix Food? You may be a food addict!~

For most people, addiction is addiction and food is no different. They complete substance abuse treatment and then begin abusing food and foodstuffs. They may overeat, binge eat, indulge in sugar and caffeine and gain weight. At The Addictions Academy, we teach you how to handle the food addiction side when the monster of drugs and alcohol is tamed. We also teach how to handle a food addiction that is independent of other addictions. Do you overeat? Use food to stuff your feelings down? Then this class will give you the tools and tricks to get both you and your clients to understand the psychology of food addiction.

What is a food addictions coach? A food addictions coach focuses on the client’s relationship with food and how food is used to stuff feelings down, hide ideals and escape whatever stress and unhappiness they have in their life. similar to drug and alcohol addictions and recovery coaches, a food addictions coach is no different, we help the client understand a healthy new relationship with food.

Addiction with food is one of the least talked about but most overused addictions. The Addictions Academy offers training on how to combat food addictions and also coaching for food addicts that have trouble specifically dealing in addiction with food. Our sister company, The Addictions Coach can assist you if you want to hire a food addictions coach.

Since abstinence from food is not an option, we offer coping skills and behavior-changing life skills. At The Addictions Academy, we will address how to handle going to an Overeaters Anonymous meeting where there is no caffeine and no sugar versus going to a Narcotics Anonymous meeting where coffee and doughnuts are served. Please note this is not a restrictive eating class (no diets but good versus bad foods to eat will be addressed). We are going to address all Food Addiction issues and ways to use coping skills and mechanisms to reduce stuffing, overeating, under-eating, dieting, restricting and using food as a tool to deal with stressors in life.

Our Food Addiction Certification Program is ideal for Therapists, Addiction Coaches, Personal Trainers, Yoga Teachers, Weight Loss Consultants, Health Coaches, Fitness Trainers, Group Exercise Instructors, even Life Coaches, anyone looking to obtain more clients or add more services and credentials to their resume will benefit from The Addictions Academy Food Addictions Certificate Program.
