Q:
Could I be addicted to junk food?

Recently, a US study revealed that the same neurological and behavioural patterns seen in cocaine and heroin addicts are also present in obese rodents that were given extended access to a sweet, fatty buffet. “High-calorie foods trigger the release of dopamine, which results in a feel-good high,” says Dr Louis Aronne from Weill Cornell Medical College in the US. Kick your habit by going cold turkey: Replace chips, ice cream and candy with popcorn, yogurt and fruit. Want a filling snack? Eat crunchy vegetables like carrots, celery and radishes dipped in salsa.

Bingeing on junk food is as addictive as smoking or taking drugs and could cause compulsive eating and obesity, a study has found. http://www.heroin-addiction.net
