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!
