It is a bold statement, but I do not doubt that it is true. The combination of high fat and sugar stimulate the pleasure senses in our brains, making us want more! Since junk food is so widely, and easily available, this may be the drug of choice for today’s generation; furthering the obesity epidemic.
Do not let food companies fool you, they purposely develop products designed to get you hooked. Sugar is extremely addicting, and when combined with fat and/or salt, it is next to impossible to say no.
As I have said in a previous post, control your mind, do not let it control you! In addition, do not let food control you – Eat well, exercise, and limit your intake of sweets.
