Sugar Addiction: Recovery from the Greatest Dietary Crisis of All Time

Julia Ross, MA, MFT, NNTS, CEO, Recovery Systems; Author, The Diet Cure and The Mood Cure

We have recently become aware of the appalling costs, to both adults and children, of our current intake of refined sugars. Sugar addiction, the dynamic that propels this dietary disaster, has been one of Ross’ primary areas of focus since 1983. While exposing the surprising contribution of low-calorie dieting to the overeating epidemic, Ross, a celebrated integrative pioneer and educator in the fields of addiction and eating disorders treatment, focuses primarily on how we can correct the faulty appetite chemistry that drives it. Her approach, based on neuronutrient research from the chemical dependency field, is widely known for its unique effectiveness. According to Ross, “The self-care and feeding of brain neurotransmitters like serotonin and endorphin is the key to regaining control of our diet, our weight, and our health.”
