Addicted to Food

I found this article to be very interesting

Can People Really Be Addicted to Food?

This new science should also tell us, I think, that blaming overeating problems on lack of willpower or some personal character flaw is neither accurate nor helpful. To avoid or recover from out-of-control eating we need to put our energy into identifying the foods and/or situations that trigger problems for us, and coming up with good strategies for helping ourselves control what and how much we eat. That starts with recognizing that we do, in fact, have this capacity.

So what is your trigger food? Cheesecake? Sour cream and onion potato chips? Turkey, gravy and stuffing?

Salty, crunchy and oily — chips have it all for me. Definitely a top trigger food.
