Can food be addictive?
The reality is that we have become addicted to food, at least to processed food and to sugary, caffeinated drinks. Why? Because food manufacturers have deliberately given them addictive qualities so that we consume more, and consequently we buy more.
Excessive amounts of addictive sugar, combinations of sugar and fat that are irresistibly rewarding, salt that pressures our preferences, and caffeine that gets you on the hook. food manufacturers know how to press the right buttons. Your greed for their addictive processed products has been deliberately stimulated to satisfy their greed for profits. Unbeknown to you, the effect of their processed concoctions has put them in control – of your weight, and your health – because your biochemistry, your ability to control what and how much you eat, has been hijacked.
You are being used .for profit.
You suffer the consequences.
The quality and make-up of the processed foods you eat is what is causing you to have a weight problem, because your body cannot process them.
It doesn’t have to be this way. With your determination and with the help of the Slim Habit you can take back control of your weight and your health.
