Is your food a WMD?

WMD = Weapon of Mass Destruction
Or you could rename it: FMD = Food of Mass Destruction
One of my sweet friends blogged about some out of control eating recently. My heart went out to her. I've been there & done that & I've got the (X-large) t-shirt to prove it.
I told her that I'm convinced there is something in those unhealthy foods that is addictive. When we haven't had them for a while & then eat them, we go out of control. So, being the Google Queen that I am, I found this article at Prevention.com:
It lists the top 10 most addictive foods & tells you what's in them or how your body reacts when you see them. It was a very eye-opening article.
For me, once I start eating those foods, I cannot stop either. I don't feel full or satisfied. Even after just eating them, I am still hungry. That's a scary, scary thing. You don't hear much about people binge-eating on whole wheat bread, freggies or water, right?
I've had discussions with my doctor about eating processed foods. She said that they cause inflammation within your body because you don't digest them well. She said that inflammation in the body over long periods of time can cause all kinds of health problems, to include arthritis & cancer. Eeeeek!!
So today, be aware of what you're eating. Stay away from that Food of Mass Destruction.
Doesn't this look better (& prettier):
Your body thinks so.
Blessings to you!!
