Everyone can agree; food is pretty damn amazing. You eat it, it tastes good, and it goes into your stomach keeping you alive and moving. Well, most food tastes good, at least if you’re not eating things you shouldn’t be.
But, it turns out that although food tastes good and will keep your body functioning, some is better for you than others. This might not be a ground breaking thing to say, but it just so happens that some food is addictive. You might have had a little chuckle at that, but we mean literally addictive. The process by which food is prepared often results in blood sugar spikes, which, if experienced often enough, can result in a physical addiction.
Now, before we get going on this list, we aren’t recommending that you give these foods up entirely, but we are suggesting it probably isn’t a good idea to live your life eating them on a twice-daily basis. Not in the least because you will probably pack on a few pounds…
Pizza is delicious. Straight up, descending from the heavens, delicious. You can eat it hot, dripping with delicious ingredients, or cold the following morning, and it is just as delicious. In fact, if we could marry a food and live out our lives with it, it would be pizza.
But, and let’s be honest you probably knew this already, it is made of two of the most addictive foods on the planet. Cheese and dough. Cheese in itself is fatty, and the bread doesn’t help. Dr Nicole Avena, an author into a study on addictive foods, recommends simply cutting back on these types of foods in order to curb addictive behaviour.

Chocolate is like a living legend, often referred to jokingly by those who mention common comfort foods. Is it delicious, of course it is. Are the many different flavours and variations almost impossible to resist? Of course. But it is likewise up there as one of the most addictive foods you could possibly ear.
Dr. Nicole Avena, on the other hand, suggests that obesity be tackled in much the some way as alcohol or drug addiction. Which is to say; delicious yet addictive foods are not exactly a meme worthy little joke.
They’re crunchy; they go great with movies, and come in a convenient foil bag. Would a Netflix binge be complete without them? Certainly not. Crunchy deliciousness is what makes Netflix the ultimate home entertainment experience.
But you might consider curing your chip intake, and maybe balancing it out by having a Netflix binge or two accompanied by carrot sticks instead. We know, you rolled your eyes at this, but we have to bring in Nicole Avena again. According to her, obesity treatment may soon resemble drug addiction treatment in many clinics, given the similarities of the addiction itself.
Biscuits, or cookies, make a glass of milk a memorable experience. Chocolate chip is especially amazing, given that you can get number 2 on the list in on the action. Or, better yet, chocolate chip with a creamy centre.
But you know where this is going. Yes, Doctor Avena is suggesting you watch your portions, and not adopt addictive eating behaviour. Thank you, doctor.
