Food Junkies Podcast

In this action-packed podcast interview on Food Junkies, David Wiss MS RDN discusses hot debates around food addiction with Dr. Vera Tarman. Clarissa Kennedy is also a host on the show. They make a great team! They describe the Food Junkies interview here:

“What we love about David’s messaging is that it focuses on bridging the Eating Disorder and Food Addiction ‘camps’. David views every person’s disordered eating behaviors on a spectrum and believes in professionally guided, individualized treatment specific to the client’s needs that are determined by a comprehensive intake and assessment. He believes in using food to rewire the brain and believes public policy change is absolutely necessary for a change in the food environment.

In todays episode we talk to him about his research papers, what we should be adding into our food plans, if he thinks abstinence is necessary for a food addict and whether he believes Food Addiction will be recognized in the DSM in the near future.”

This opportunity to discuss the dichotomy between classic eating disorder approaches and emerging food addiction science is my favorite topic! The conversation started with the DEFANG paper published in 2017 and was really extended by my article on Food Philosophies. Take some time to listen to this podcast and let me know your thoughts!

David became a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) in 2013 and founded Nutrition in Recovery, a group practice of RDNs specializing in the treatment of eating and substance use disorders. In 2017, David received the “Excellence in Practice” award at the national Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo. The California Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics awarded him the “Emerging Dietetic Leader Award” in 2020. He earned his PhD from UCLA’s Fielding School of Public Health in the Community Health Sciences department (with a minor in Health Psychology) by investigating the links between adverse childhood experiences and various mental health outcomes among socially disadvantaged men. His treatment philosophy is based on a biopsychosocial model which incorporates an understanding of biological mechanisms, psychological underpinnings, and contextual factors that integrate the social determinants of health. His website Wise Mind Nutrition offers a fully online interactive treatment program that will be available in the Summer of 2022.
