Is Food Addictive?

Do you crave cakes, cookies and candies?

The second installment of a three part series on obesity in the National Post continues to emphasize the importance of diet over exercise in the battle to lose weight. This time, they examine the stimulating nature of certain foods and what make us want to eat more of them.

The article likens the affect that foods like fats, sugar and processed goods have on our brains to that of drugs. It claims that these foods are highly addictive and some people are unable to resist the urge to eat them in mass quantities.

The article goes on to note that lean people have learned to live with the urges and are able to eat unhealthy foods in moderation.

What do you think? Check out the article and post your comments!

Stay Healthy,
