ABSTRACT
The article presents a study which examined the possibility that some obese patients have refined food addiction as a primary cause of excess fat accumulation. It mentions several symptoms of food addiction including craving, which is a common symptom of addiction and is associated with binge eating. It suggests the validation of the refined food model in order for this model to help in managing the epidemic of obesity.
