Food addiction: Emily Bennington, http://emilybennington.comFri, 17 May 2013 11:39:31 GMT, I know how food addiction starts. Believe me, I’ve been there. You have a bite. And then another. Next thing you know, the box is gone and you feel like shit. (Again.) You’re disgusted, ashamed, embarrassed, guilty, and even through..
Food Addiction is something we recognize when we hear it said.
But most of us believe food addiction is something that can only apply to somebody else. We recognize it. But we don’t see ourselves in that category. We can handle the weight. We intend to start a diet any day now. Of course, we close our ears to the fact that diets don’t work. Why don’t they work? Our internal body hasn’t changed for thousands of years. How can we expect our metabolism. And digestive system. To suddenly begin to process fake foods. produced in a factory. More than 60% of the foods we eat today. Are processed foods our body doesn’t understand. No wonder we have become addicted to them.
But nobody wants to acknowledge that food addiction may be the cause of their weight problems. It’s not possible. We just have a sweet tooth. Or we love pasta. Or we simply must have that morning and afternoon snack bar, or bag of crisps. Surely that’s normal -Right? The problem is. We don’t want to accept that we have a genuine, dangerous addiction. An addiction that is life threatening. And endangers our lives along with our children’s. Like all addicts. We become irresponsible. We cannot see past our passion for food. To realize that we are causing our kids to walk to same path to obesity. That we walk ourselves.
When it comes to food we no longer do the thinking!
Like drugs, alcohol and tobacco. They are cravings, binges, hunger pains, withdrawals, fatigue, high blood pressure, depression, anxiety, allergies, headaches and other pains. It’s estimated around 60% of us are already addicted. According to obesity statistics, 86% will be obese by 2030. This is a race against climate change, as to which of these two evils will destroy us first.
Yet, the the thing we fear most is the fear shared by all addicts: Losing our source of supply. If we admit to being addicted, right away those around us will apply pressure, or at least expect us to do something. Like cut down, eliminate certain things – we are are not ready for that. The thought is confronting, even terrifying.
Our addiction does that for us. It makes us think that if fake, processed foods were really as bad as that. They would have been banned it by now. These unnatural, fake foods wouldn’t be promoted in every corner of our lives. At the very least, some authority would have stepped in to save our kids. Instead, they encourage mandatory fake food for school lunches.
Forty years ago we were coerced to change our natural foods. It was not just a change. it was a complete reversal. We abandoned our natural foods. Those who benefited from this upheaval. Are easy to identify. They are called the food industry. In four decades. They gone from a handful of insignificant cereal manufacturers. To a multi-national, mega industry. With thousands of factories around the world. It has become one of the biggest industries on the planet. If not the biggest. Grain growers and diet experts bask in their glory. Like the tobacco industry. The food industry thrives and prospers on an addiction. The greatest victim has been our own internal body. It is not designed to adapt to new types of food. It evolves and evolution takes a very long time.
So how do we cure our food addiction? It is not easy. But it can be made easy. There is an article here: It will explain the fastest, easiest way to cure your addiction and lose all the weight. Not for a few months, or a year, as happens when we diet. But for good. As long as we continue to eat the food our body understands. Our weight and our food addiction will never return!
