I grazed over a number of articles that compare food addiction to other addictions, in terms of symptoms and treatments. One interesting article talks about dealing with food addiction, (although it's got a hype-ish title), can be found here. I also mention a study showing that certain nutrient deficiencies in obese people can increase the Risk of developing diabetes. It can be found here. As always, feel free to contact me on my contact page if you have any questions or suggestions for future topics.
