FOOD ADDICTION

Last May I wrote a post about food addiction in my family. Today I ran across Michael Prager and his  book Fat Boy, Thin Man, the website, and this video. I know food addiction is real, but I understand it's a difficult concept for many people to accept.  This little video is for them. (It's 7 minutes.)

And here's an article from the NYTimes talking about what non-natural food products that are "hyperpalatable" do to the brain (the same things drugs do). http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/09/20/craving-an-ice-cream-fix/?nl=health&emc=edit_hh_20120925
