Course Description: There is an ongoing debate regarding the existence of food addiction and rather it should be recognized as a formal diagnosis in texts such as the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, 5th edition (DSM 5). Researchers evaluated existing evidence in support of the 11 criterion of substance use disorder as well as supplemental characteristics of addiction as it relates to food addiction. Results from rat and human studies support addiction criteria for food, but future research is needed to explore sub-criterion that will be useful for creating prevention programs and treatment options for those struggling with possible food addiction.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the diagnostic criteria of addiction and supplemental characteristics of addiction
  2. List three criterion supporting the existence of food addiction in animal and human studies
  3. Analyze the existing evidence supporting food addiction as a form of substance use disorder compared to a behavioral addiction
