Abstract

Sequel to Danowski's Why Can't I Stop Eating?

At age 23, Debbie Danowski was imprisoned by food addiction. Years of stuffing her feelings by ingesting endless quantities of ice cream, potato chips, candy, and burgers left Danowski feeling isolated, inadequate, deceptive, and unlovable. Liberation came only after Danowski enrolled in a six-week inpatient treatment program for food addiction. There, as she learned about her physiological addiction to sugar and flour, Danowski came to recognize her deeper, unmet cravings for love and self-acceptance.

With honesty, raw emotion, and even a bit of humor, Danowski offers an engaging first-person account of her treatment experience.
