For serious! www.huffingtonpost.co.uk
I totally lost my battle to avoid ice cream yesterday. I got all stressed out after having a bad time at a big party and found myself on autopilot, walking to the grocery store to buy a pint of Ben and Jerry's. It really was like a drug addict needing a fix! (Or a person experiencing the prodrome of an oncoming migraine. Equally unpleasant, 'specially when the headache kicked in at 6:30am)
So awful. But apparently scientifically validated as a real thing! I am not at all surprised to hear that sugar (particularly when paired with fat) does the same thing to your brain as cocaine or nicotine addiction. This sugar thang really got its claws in me again and I need to fight it back off. One day at a time, right? One day at a time.
