Food Addiction and Obesity Is a Profit-Driven Enterprise

At the heart of the problem is the issue of toxic food—foods that are heavily processed and purposely designed for maximum “craveability.”  None of this happened by chance. Companies spend untold amounts concocting just the right flavor formulas to keep you coming back for more. To illustrate my point, consider this: Researchers at the Boston Children’s Hospital recently demonstrated that highly processed carbohydrates stimulate brain regions involved in reward and cravings, promoting excess hunger.7 As reported by Science Daily:8
“These findings suggest that limiting these “high-glycemic index” foods could help obese individuals avoid overeating.”
While I don’t agree with the concept of high glycemic foods, the featured research shows just how foolhardy the AMA’s decision to reclassify obesity as a disease really is, because drugs and vaccines are clearly not going to do anything to address the underlying problem of addictive junk food!
“Sensory-specific satiety” is a fundamental guiding principle in the processed food industry, and this applies to everythingfrom junky snacks to staples like pasta sauce—that’s part of the problem! Processed fructose, salt and fat are the top three substances making processed foods so addictive. Novel biotech flavor companies like Senomyx also play an important role in the development of foods that trick you into thinking it’s healthier than it really is.
Senomyx, for example, specializes in helping companies find new flavors that allow them to use less salt and sugar in their foods. But does that really make the food healthier? This is a questionable assertion at best, as these “flavor enhancers” are being created using carefully guarded patented processes. They also do not need to be listed on the food label, which leaves you completely in the dark—all you see is that the food contains far less of the dietary culprits you’re told to avoid.

    Yep, I recommend the book Fast Food Nation.

    It is an interesting read and gives you an insight to the fast food business. It is USA based but, the facts are the same, all over the world.

    I’m someone who is 6’2″ and should weigh somewhere between 14 to 15 stone based on my muscle bulk, but went up to over 18 stone once.

    It takes a mental and lifestyle choice to change this. You have to give up the processed food and eat healthy foods. Nothing wrong with the odd takeaway (carry out for our American friends). But they can’t and shouldn’t be a staple part of your diet.

    I make my own curries, own kebabs, when I need I need a Friday night fix and during the week will eat freshly made food, such as lasagne, spagbol, chilli, seafood, even simple things like sausage mash & beans. Plus a roast on Sunday.

    None of it is perfect, but it is generally made with decent ingredients, some of it home grown.

    Weight is the main reason of the all heart diseases. Weight loss and regular exercise are the prevention of the heart diseases.
