Ten-Step Program to End Food Addictions

I have created a 10-step program for people who are addicted to unhealthy foods or consuming unhealthy quantities of foods. If your food addictions are affecting the quality of your life, relationships with others, your career and your overall self-esteem, this program can be helpful in empowering you to become the master of yourself as opposed to the prisoner of your addictive behavior.

Ten-Step Program to End Addiction to Food

1) You must admit that you are often powerless over the desire to consume food. It has caused your life to be unmanageable or it is preventing you from pursuing your Dharma**.
2) You are willing to acknowledge that spirit or God can help you transcend this attachment.
3) In deep inner healing work you have come to understand the nature of your problem and admitted it to another person.
4) You are ready to transmute this karmic* attachment so you could pursue your bliss.
5) You work each day at the end of your meditation on overcoming your karmic attachments.
6) You make a list of individuals with whom you have karmic debts outstanding and are willing to make amends to them.
7) You have made the amends and successfully transmuted karma.
8) Continue to take daily inventory and create no new karma.
9) Continue to meditate daily
10) Further transmute karma by taking the message of healing to others.

  • Karma: Means past actions
  • Dharma: Life’s purpose

In this chapter we presented a program to help you make permanent behavioral change. The most important step is admitting that you have a problem. By purchasing this book and reviewing the previous chapters, you have initiated the healing process.
