Food Addiction

In this age of information the secret is out on junk food. We all know it is terrible for us, and the numbers of death associated with obesity rivals those of tobacco and alcoholism. Even so there is a line out the door of McDonalds three times a day, why is this? Could it be that we are actually addicted to this stuff? Has it become such a part of our daily life that we cannot function without a kick of sugar and simple carbs, washed down by a hefty dose of saturated fats? Here is an article I found at precisionnutrition.com on exactly this topic: http://www.precisionnutrition.com/is-food-addiction-real

Read it and tell me what you think, did the finding surprise you? Do you look at your junk food differently now? 

Hopefully with more studies like this one we can educate the generally public on what their food is actually doing to them. So spread the word!
