What is a food addiction coach?
A food addiction 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.
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!
What are the symptoms of sugar withdrawal?
Sugar and Food Addiction has both a physical craving and an emotional craving addiction to it. The symptoms of food and sugar addiction withdrawal include diarrhea, nausea, body aches, foggy brain, irritability, anger and anxiety. Sugar and food addiction withdrawal is similar to a heroin detox.
How do I stop overeating?
If you overeat you probably have an addiction to food and sugar. Most of the food like products, like pop tarts, Doritos and fast foods are designed to get your body and mind addicted to wanting more of the chemicals, preservatives and additives in the foods. You need to identify the emotional triggers causing you to overeat and learn how to combat them.
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.
