WHY YOU ARE ADDICTED TO JUNK FOOD
HOW TO BREAK THE CYCLE OF ADDICTION
I am sort of like that "dry alcoholic". As long as I never touch it, I don't really crave it. But give me that first Oreo (or doughnut, or bite of cheesecake, or whatever) and I want more. And the more I want is not just here-and-now today. I promise that I'll want it tomorrow as well. It's the nature of an addiction. The more you eat, the more you want. This is why you will almost never see me eating desert or junk.
Using modern medical technology, Schroeder and his team at CC proved that Oreo Cookies (admit it ---- you can't eat just one yourself) actually activate a greater number of neurons that either cocaine or heroin / morphine. Stop and re-read that sentence and let the magnitude of it sink in. Here is the thing ---- you already knew this! Otherwise, pushing away from the table, saying no to junk, losing weight, and getting in great shape would be so simple that everyone would be jumping on the wagon. Instead, if you count those who are SKINNY FAT, we are a society where nearly 4 of 5 adults are either OBESE OR OVERWEIGHT.
