Alcohol, drugs, gambling. shopping, sex and food are all known addictions; however one category is missing - that of processed food. Yes, that's right, not just food but processed food. Many processed foods have been chemically engineered to have the same effect on your brain as drugs like cocaine or heroin. It's important to realize that if you find yourself craving processed foods that is NOT a mistake because there is a multi-billion dollar industry working against you. Dr. Joan Ifland studies how processed food is engineered to cause addiction and, more importantly, what you can do to break that addiction.
On this episode of All About Fitness, Dr. Ifland talks about how processed food manufacturers follow the practices of the tobacco industry to get you addicted to low cost, calorically-dense food lacking any real nutritional value. You will learn steps you can take to beat that addiction and use nutrition to move towards better health.
