Cheesecake Really IS Crack

I spend a lot of time wondering why I can't stop eating sweets like this once I start eating them.

One bite and I can't seem to feel satisfied!  Mystery solved:  this article makes it clear that this phenomenon is "in my head"--literally.  I am familiar with the research behind the article, as this book is full of such information.  So, what am I to do?   When we know better we should do better, right?  So does this apply to everything but our diets?  Is it realistic to cut out ALL sweets and high fat foods?   


  1. No it is not realistic and should not be done...That would be very unhealthy:)

  2. I heard yesterday on NPR that cheesecake REALLY does the same thing to your brain that crack does. It overloads your 'pleasure sensors'. It takes more and more to get that feeling the next time. I swear that is what it said!

  3. It isn't all bad. It does have cheese in it. :)
