I’ve written previously about chocolate, cheese, meat, sugar and processed foods and how they can actually become a physical addiction. Drugs don’t become addictive until they are extracted and concentrated by modern industrial processes. When whole foods are processed, refined and concentrated, large quantities of them may lead some people to compulsively seek and consume them. Much as classic drugs of abuse highjack the brain, accumulating evidence suggests that chronic consumption of refined, highly palatable foods can have a similar impact, but with weaker effects. Hypnosis help to overcome food addiction is available at Seattle weight loss hypnosis and Bainbridge Island weight loss hypnosis with Slender For Life™.
Chocolate, Cheese, Meat, and Sugar
— Physically Addictive
Neal Barnard MD discusses the science behind food additions. Willpower is not to blame: chocolate, cheese, meat, and sugar release opiate-like substances. Dr. Barnard also discusses how industry, aided by government, exploits these natural cravings, pushing us to eat more and more unhealthy foods. A plant-based diet is the solution to avoid many of these problems. Neal Barnard is the founder of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM).

Chocolate, Cheese, Meat, and Sugar — Physically Addictive
Research shows that people are most likely to “binge” on highly palatable, energy rich foods. These foods are typically high in fats, sugars, or often both. Binge episodes often involve consumption of bread or pasta, followed in frequency by sweets, fatty foods, or salty snacks. Individuals with a preference for bingeing on sweet foods tend to binge more frequently
Addictive foods appear to be those that provide the most seductive rewards – those that raise dopamine levels the highest or the fastest. Foods such as sugar and other refined sweeteners, other refined carbohydrates such as flour, fat, salt and caffeine are thought to have the greatest addictive potential. Like drugs, these foods may not become addictive until they are extracted and concentrated by modern industrial processes.
