Today we are excited to welcome Susan Peirce Thompson, Ph.D., back to the show again. For those who need a refresher, Susan is an expert in the psychology of eating and has shared so much with us about the science behind food addiction and addiction in general. Susan is an Adjunct Associate Professor of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at the University of Rochester, the President of the Institute for Sustainable Weight Loss, and the CEO of Bright Line Eating Solutions.
On top of that, Susan is a successful published author. We learned about her first book Bright Line Eating: The Science of Living Happy, Thin and Free, on episode 10, but now Susan is back at it again with her newest book, ReZoom. In this episode, we discuss different sections of her book, what it means to be addicted to food, the difference between eating disorders and food addiction, why food addiction is the hardest addiction to break, and more.
“Can a food addict healthily have joy in eating and around their food? Absolutely. When you are in recovery and start to think of food in a healthy frame, you realize that we are using it in ways where it is not the right tool for the job.” – Dr. Susan Peirce Thompson
