Salt-Sugar-Fat Addiction

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

If you are reading this, you've probably missed the opportunity to see Feb. 26 episode of the Dr. Oz show. He had the author of "Salt, Sugar, and Fat: Could You Be Addicted?"

I feel vindicated.

I wish I knew the solution, but it's nice to know that the problem is real, and the manufacturers are working to keep it going.

Know what he says is the biggest culprit with sugar, salt and fat all wrapped up in one wonderful thing that takes us to our bliss point?

potato chips

All I can think to do is to STAY AWAY from processed food. And then to be sure when I cook that I don't make my own salt-sugar-fat combo that sets me off.

    potato chips are a trigger food for me, so I tend to avoid them.

    Yes, the problem is real. Now that we know it for certain, we can start to defend against it as best as we can. Who wants to be a patsy for the military-industrial-toxic food complex? Nobody!

    I looked up 'vindicated' but don't get what it means in this context. I never liked potato chips!

    I'm not familiar with Michael Moss, but I have read The End of Overeating by Dr. David Kessler, former commissioner of the FDA. He also examined the food industry's use of fat-sugar-salt to make food hyper-palatable, and the lengths they would go to make more money. Very eye-opening stuff.

    I caught some of that. Potato chips are my ultimate addiction.

The author's name is Michael Moss if anyone wants to obtain a copy of the book from their friendly library!
