"Everybody wants to change. But we can’t because we are all addicts. Our drug is sugar and we have food that gives pleasure to our brain, so we can’t let go of it.”
We all desire to be healthier. And when we actually attempt to, our usual resolutions would be to cut down on anything ‘unhealthy’ that we can think of. Sipping coffee less in the morning and taking out carbs in the evening. This path becomes an uphill battle that only backfires on us.
Food addiction has always been an in-demand subject. Even though we have listened to and agreed to all the experts’ advice, we just can’t seem to get past these cravings. It’s like answering the call of nature, and we have no logical control over it.
