Addictive as cocaine
Research supports the theory that high-fat/high-sugar foods stimulate the brain in the same way that drugs do. In other words, Oreos are as addictive as cocaine.
At Seattle Hypnosis for Weight Loss with Roger Moore I teach you mindfulness self-hypnosis so that you can end your addiction to fat and sugar.
Is food your drug of choice? Are you over weight and want to lose weight? My Slender For Life™ Weight Loss Hypnosis program can help you to be successful at losing weight and keeping it off.
Why Oreos Are As Addictive As Cocaine To Your Brain
“It basically tells us how many cells were turned on in a specific region of the brain in response to the drugs or Oreos,” said Connecticut College professor Joseph Schroeder, who led the research. Oreos actually activated cells in this brain area more than did either cocaine or morphine, which suggests that that magical combination of sugar and fat may be even more delectable to our brains than drugs.
“Our research supports the theory that high-fat/high-sugar foods stimulate the brain in the same way that drugs do,” Schroeder said. “It may explain why some people can’t resist these foods despite the fact that they know they are bad for them.” Read Why Oreos Are As Addictive As Cocaine To Your Brain
Food was my drug of choice
For most of my life I was overweight. For much or it, I was obese. For more than 40 years I did the yo-yo diets. I’d diet and lose weight and gain it plus more back. As a young adult, I realized that food was my drug of choice. As hard as I tried, I could not break my addiction to fat and sugar.
Then, more than 20 years ago, weight loss hypnosis changed my life. In fact, I believe that hypnosis for weight loss saved my life. When I weighed 260 pounds my blood pressure was high and I was borderline diabetic.
Thanks to hypnosis, for the last 20 years, my weight has hovered in the 140 – 145 pound range. My blood pressure and blood sugars are in the very healthy ranges. In December at my annual physical my doctor just shakes his head and giggles. He said I have the health of a 20 year-old.
I’m very passionate about helping you to overcome your food addictions and about helping you to lose weight and live slender for life.
