Objectives: 1. Describe food addiction in those with eating disorders and those without

2. Describe eating behavior on a spectrum rather as a binary classification

3. Describe how food addiction and principles of intuitive eating converge and diverge.

The intuitive eating community insists that food addiction does not exist. But evidence suggests otherwise. There is a timely need to discuss areas of convergence and divergence between differing schools of thought. In this presentation, Dr. David Wiss uses storytelling to share his journey as a dietitian working in mental and behavioral health .

This presentation discusses the shortcomings of the food addiction construct, and the shortcomings of the intuitive eating construct.

Five clinical vignettes will be presented, and discourse is welcome and encouraged. David became a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) in 2013 and founded Nutrition in Recovery, a group practice of RDNs specializing in the treatment of eating and substance use disorders. He earned his Doctor of Philosophy degree (PhD) in UCLA's Fielding School of Public Health in the Community Health Sciences department, with a minor in Health Psychology.

Dr. Wiss can be your nutrition and health consultant, functional medicine practitioner, recovery coach, or simply provide psychoeducation related to his areas of expertise.
