They say food companies have proven formulas that keep us hooked on junk food.
Michael Moss author of Salt, Sugar and Fat was recently interviewed on THINK, the radio program on KERA 90.1 hosted by Krys Boyd.
What I gleaned from the interview was this:
Junk foods have power over us, they are chemically addictive, and they know where the ‘Bliss point’ for sugar is on the bell curve and formulate the recipes to that. They know that the taste buds in our tongues are connected to the pleasure centers of the brain.
The food industry is trying to please its stockholders and at the same time take responsibility for the obesity in the country, so they are improving labels and limiting marketing to children.
However if the package says LOW FAT, there probably is added sugar (or it wouldn’t taste good), or if it is LESS SUGAR, there is probably more fat again so it will taste good and we will buy in. And buy into the idea that we are eating healthy.
I am not taking a side on this debate but offering a way OUT. I work with people dependent on alcohol and have seen research that states hypnosis can change an addict’s dependency on cocaine.
So I was thinking….
…if hypnosis can get someone off cocaine, which is chemically addicting, they could it not also work for getting a person off the bags of chips or ice cream. ABSOLUTELY. I do it every week.
More Info on Hypnosis For Cocaine Addiction: Documented Case Study
Hypnosis was successfully used to overcome a $500 (five grams) per day cocaine addiction. The subject was a female in her twenties. After approximately 8 months of addiction, she decided to use hypnosis in an attempt to overcome the addiction itself. Over the next 4 months, she used hypnosis three times a day and at the end of this period, her addiction was broken, and she has been drug free for the past 9 years. Hypnosis was the only intervention, and no support network of any kind was available.
