The Fat Trap
There’s science behind why we find unhealthy food so more-ish…
When you’re feeling down, you crave foods that mix fat and sugar. The heady combo floods the brain with the neurotransmitter dopamine, giving you an instant mood boost.
One More Hit
Once you get a taste for junk food, your body will start to release endocannabinoids. This ‘just-one-more’ chemical has properties similar to marijuana and ensures you’ll never leave that last chip.
Stuck In A Rut
An excess of unhealthy food inhibits the dopamine receptors in your brain. This means you’ll need increasing amounts of the stuff you crave to get you high.
