The Myths and Facts of Food Addiction with Dr. Joan Ifland

The greatest. Steak egg and cheese bagel. My last fast food meal before my New Year's resolution.

How does one become a food addict? Can it happen to kids? Is it genetic? What is it about fast food that hooks you?

Dr. Joan Ifland Ph.D., MBA,  is the author of Processed Food Addiction: Foundations, Assessment, and Recovery. She joined Wendy and Judy Pielach (in for Bill Leff) today to explain why we crave fast foods, what we can do to reduce our cravings, how to pick healthier choices, and much more.
