New discoveries in science are proving that processed sugar, fat, and salt-laden food — food that is processed so that these are the main biological and psychological inputs to the experience of eating it — is biologically addictive. We are biologically wired to crave chips, cookies, ice cream, and soda, and eat as much of these foods as possible.
The truth is that nobody binges on broccoli and apples. The trouble is, how do we get to a place in which broccoli and apples are truly satisfying and we aren’t seeking out sugar, trans-fats, and lots of salt? “Just say no”?
In order to truly deal with unhealthy food cravings and addictions, we need to learn how to support our bodies with a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that we need to look at how all areas of our lives are connected.
