Did you know that food can be just as “addictive” as drugs?… And this because of what they can do to your hormones, brain chemicals and neurotransmitters. Again, all similar to how drugs work.
This is why some people when they are sad, the crave foods that are composed of mainly sugars and fats. Also known as “comfort foods”. The foods that tastes the best, but are usually not as healthy.
There’s nothing wrong with eating these types of foods, as long as they’re done in moderation and infrequently. Otherwise, you’ll gain weight and that in itself will cause negative emotions.
The good news is that you can always take all-natural herbs and vitamins that can cause similar and very powerful “mood enhancing” changes, helping to reduce anxiety and decrease symptoms of depression. All without the extra calories of weight gain.
