These lessons are the heart of the course. Dr. Tarman makes complex, high-level science understandable and accessible so that you will have actionable information you can use to begin your recovery from food addiction.  You can watch the videos as many times as you wish during the course, and you will have continued access to your student portal after the course ends so that you can log in and replay them anytime you’d like a refresher.

An invaluable opportunity!  These LIVE sessions are your chance to go beyond what’s in the lessons and ask Dr. Tarman to dive deeper into issues of specific interest to you or to provide more clarity on anything in the course. If you can’t attend a LIVE session, you’ll receive a link the very next day so you can watch the REPLAY at any time.

Although Dr. Tarman cannot provide personalized medical advice during these sessions, they are an opportunity to interact directly with a physician whose career is dedicated to diagnosing and treating food addiction and helping people succeed along the path to food freedom.

All 18 lessons come with complete transcripts that you can use to follow along while you watch the videos, or print out to read at your leisure and refer back to at any time. (Like all the pdf resources that come with the course, you can download and save these—they are yours to keep.)

course content

Module 1: What is Food Addiction?

Module 2: Am I a Food Addict?

Module 3: Food Addiction Treatment

Module 4: It’s Not Just About the Food

Module 5: Food Addiction Issues


There are logical scientific explanations for why you engage in behaviors that may feel irrational to you.  Certain foods have very specific effects on your brain chemistry – effects that override the “higher-order” part of your brain that controls conscious decision-making and sensible actions.  Learning about these effects and identifying which foods are the most problematic for you are the keys to using this biology in your favor rather than trying to follow diets that work against it at every turn – a strategy that has failed you every time.  The Sugar & Food Addiction course will teach you how to make peace with food and gain control of your eating by harnessing your brain chemistry and directing it to work for you in a way that supports healthful habits and food serenity for the long term. 

**This is the first course of its kind!  Nowhere is this information laid out so clearly for students, professionals, or the lay public.
