“The Extraordinary Science of Addictive Junk Food.”

NY Times Article

If you’ve ever blamed yourself for succumbing to fast food or not being able to stop eating, it would be worth reading this article about how food conglomerates deliberately entice us, using the biochemistry of our brains and taste buds to overcome our rational motivations. Their job, insiders tell us, is to get us hooked on foods that are inexpensive and/or convenient. ┬áIf you have wondered how you could be gaining weight when you eat healthy food like yogurt, try reading the ingredients of what you buy (Ex.Yoplait’s new recipe is sweetened with twice as much sugar as Lucky Charms cereal!). Decreased real food and increased processed food plus multiple snacks instead of meals are┬árecipes for weight gain. The article is long but very enlightening. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/24/magazine/the-extraordinary-science-of-junk-food.html?pagewanted=all&_r=1&
