What foods cause very strong dependence
Scientists from the US National Institute on Drug Abuse said that after careful inspection concluded that the food can be addictive! And what more, not less nicotine, for example.
Experts asked the volunteers to assess the degree of habituation to the favorite product of the Yale Food Addiction Scale (YFAS). Note that Yale scale - this is one of the newest methods of getting used to assess a particular food, developed by Dr. Ashley Garhardtom.
We offer a selection of the most insidious food that causes a strong dependence.
Depending on the scale Korzheva creamy dessert in one piece which contains on average about 500 calories, scored 3, 26 points. At the same time, doctors do not call for completely abandon the cakes. There can be, but not when you want, and in the first half of the day - for breakfast.
8. Sweet soda
For cakes and pastries followed by soft drinks with sugar, scored 3, 29 points on a scale of Yale. The systematic use of fizzy drinks can not only be addictive, but also radically change the metabolism. Moreover, according to doctors, is sufficient only one month every day to drink "pop" to change the metabolism of the worse.
Burgers in any form not only quickly corrected the figure, adding to the waist extra centimeters, but also affect the metabolism and alter the taste preferences. On a scale of habituation this fastfood scored 3, 51 points.
6. French fries
French fries is highly addictive, especially because it contains acrylamide. Interestingly, this product does not give a sense of satiety. Eating a serving of deep fried potatoes (usually very salty), a man after 30-40 minutes I want to eat again. This is due to the fact that French fries stimulates appetite.
5. Ice Cream
Due to the high content of sugar and saturated fat ice cream with regular use will not only add extra kilos, but can turn a man into "butter addict."
4. Cookies, sweet pastries
I am going to eat just one small chocolate chip cookies, but eventually "destroyed" nearly half a pack. In such a situation certainly appeared to many. And because the matter is not in good appetite. The secret of sweet biscuits, and any baking with a high content of fat and sugar is the same as that of the ice cream.
3. Potato chips
Some people believe that eating a "chipsinu" impossible. For the first will inevitably be followed by the second, third, it can not be excluded as the fourth and fifth. It is ironic but true: salty potato slices will eat one another, regardless of whether the person is experiencing the feeling of hunger. This phenomenon scientists have even given a name - the hedonic hyperphagia (eating something else for fun, not to saturate). According to doctors, many manufacturers add the chips in addition to salt and spices "triggers" - substances that stimulate the brain pleasure center.
On the scale of the food depending chocolate scored as much and chips - 3, 73 points. It is a treat like ice cream acts on the brain by stimulating the pleasure center and blocking the ability to control the amount eaten. However, in this case it is due to the high content of refined carbohydrates and caffeine.
Finally, the leader of the rating. More food, depending on the scale of all typed pizza - 4, 01 points.
It turns out, fat, salt and refined carbohydrates at the same time rich snack more chocolate, potato chips, French fries and burgers stimulates the pleasure zone.
