Emotional Symptoms of Food Addiction

• Do you find yourself feeling depressed, hopeless, sad or ashamed about your eating

or your weight?

• Do you find yourself eating when you are upset or reward yourself with food when

you do something good?

• Have you ever noticed after eating sugar, flour, or wheat that you become more

irritable?
