Why you crave chocolate and other carbs!

February 13, 2011

Do you love chocolate?

Well, you are not alone.

In the developed world, chocolate probably by far is the most wanted, most dreamed about, most longed for type of sweet, particularly among women. But also other food products, such as; cakes, cookies, bread and pasta, which primarily consist of carbohydrates, score high on the list.

Why is this? What makes carbohydrates so addictive? Why do you keep wanting more?

An article (link below) on healthhabits.ca explains the answer to these questions so well, that I thought I’d post it here.

Once you have read the post, scroll down to the comments below the article on that same page. The author (DR) explains in the comments (November 14th) how to break this addiction.

If you can control your carb intake, you are on the right path to controlling your concentration and increasing your attention span, controlling and even losing weight, reducing your chances of developing type 2 diabetes, and feeling more fit overall.

It requires some willpower to kick this one, but it can be done!

Make sure you read this article
