There is no blood test available to diagnose food addiction. Just like with other addictions, it is based on behavioral symptoms.

Here are 8 common symptoms that are typical of food addicts:

• You frequently get cravings for certain foods, despite feeling full and having just finished a nutritious meal.

• When you give in and start eating a food you were craving, you often find yourself eating much more than you intended to.

• When you eat a food you were craving, you sometimes eat to the point of feeling excessively “stuffed.”

• You often feel guilty after eating particular foods, yet find yourself eating them again soon after.

• You sometimes make excuses in your head about why you should eat something that you are craving.

• You have repeatedly tried to quit eating or setting rules (includes cheat meals/days) about certain foods, but been unsuccessful.

• You often hide your consumption of unhealthy foods from others.

• You feel unable to control your consumption of unhealthy foods, despite knowing that they are causing you physical harm (includes weight gain).

If you can relate to 4-5 of these, then you probably do have a serious problem with food. If you can relate to 6 or more, then you are most likely a food addict.
