A new study found that junk food is just as addictive as heroin. Of course it is. Duh! The sense of euphoria that people who are addictive to food get from eating things that are high in fat, calories and sugar could be likened to that of a drug addict who has just gotten his or her next fix. How do I know? Because I'm addicted to food. I have been for a long time. Only in the last year or so have I realized that it's more about the quality of food, rather than the quantity. I'm just as happy eating brown rice with tofu and veggies as I am eating pizza. I'm just left with less guilt about making terrible decisions when I choose the first. Food is fuel. That will be the motto for the rest of my existence.
