MEET OUR FOUNDER

​Esther Helga Gudmundsdottir is a pioneer in the field of food addiction treatment. Once an opera singer and opera teacher, Esther was battling food addiction for most of her adult life until she discovered a twelve-step program that changed her life.

Once in recovery, she sought education on addiction treatment and opened one of the first food addiction treatment programs in the world. The MFM Program in Iceland has treated over 3000 people, some of whom have tried multiple diets and even surgery in an attempt to live a healthier life.

After establishing the treatment center, Esther realized that not only patients but also professionals needed help with food addiction. She then founded the International School For Food Addiction Counseling And Treatment (INFACT), an international training program for any professional willing to learn about food addiction and how to help those suffering from it.
