"Everybody" has been talking about the recent omega-6 thing.... Up to now, defining "rewarding" foods as opposed to "palatable" ones has been horribly nebulous, but perhaps we can stick a label on it now.
"Rewarding" foods -- the ones that cause the trouble -- are generally loaded with the industrial seed oils whose components act like pot on the appetite. They frequently contain grain opioids, also. ADDICTIVE FOODS ARE DRUGS -- no difference whatsoever.
When exactly the right (wrong) foods hit a particular set of genes, nasty things happen. ...On top of the nasty things that happen when a metabolism that doesn't want to run on glucose is forced to do just that.
So can we file FR in the "substance abuse" folder now? THANK YOU!
