Dr. Jon O. Ebbert joined us to discuss food addiction. Is there such a thing and does is account for the epidemic of obesity? What are the similarities between drug addiction and “food addiction?” What are the controversies surrounding the conceptualization of ”food addiction”? We also learned about The Flab Four; (the four foods that make you fat) rice, bread, pasta and potatoes.
