John Bradshaw’s series of three workshops tackle 4-major eating disorders; Binging (obesity), Purging (bulimia), Starving (anorexia), and Obsession with Eating and Dieting (fat/thin disorder).  Bradshaw believes that food addiction replaces the deep need each of us has for love and intimacy.  To find the core of the problem and begin to work on solutions, Bradshaw returns to the family.  In this series he relates that food addicted families have unreasonable demands for loyalty and togetherness.  Above all, they have serious problems resolving conflicts. Feelings, especially anger, are never expressed directly.  Where anger, fear, and sadness are not allowed in food-addicted families, family members learn early in life that they can literally “eat these feelings''

 PART 1.  Bradshaw identifies some common factors in people who suffer from obesity, bulimia, anorexia, or diet obsession.

 

PART 2.  About why diets seldom work when overeating is a response to a troubled family background.

 

PART 3.  Self-acceptance and the help of a support person are among the ten ingredients Bradshaw offers for enjoyable, nutritious, and non-addicted eating.
