"It's easy to claim we're "addicted" to foods like the donuts from down the street or our beloved Thai takeout. But while the concept of food addiction is controversial among researchers, there is growing evidence that highly-processed, fatty, sugary foods like pizza, chocolate, chips and cookies as uniquely problematic foods in people’s lives."
"In the latest study published on the subject, Dr. Nicole Avena of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai found that behaviors and attitudes surrounding some types of food closely followed addiction patterns. She hopes her work, recently published in the journal PLOS One, might one day contribute to the next generation of obesity and eating disorder treatment."
"Notice anything? The foods that caused people the most mental distress and physical discomfort are also foods that are highly-processed or are high in added fats and sugars. They’re also more likely to have the highest levels of glycemic load, which is a measurement of how a food will raise a person’s blood sugar level after eating it. That’s no coincidence, said Avena. "
"Avena, who has been researching food addiction for over 15 years, says that hers is the first clinical study to assess the connection between how people eat certain foods and the properties of that food -- whether it be added fat, sugar or its highly-processed manufacture. She hopes that the finding could one day help struggling obese people re-frame their approach to weight loss." Source: The Huffington Post
