More than just being an individual issue of having "no willpower" or "losing control" when it comes to eating certain foods, the ingredients in many of the common foods on the market actually can create an addiction in the brain. Studies have shown that our brains light up with eating sugar (and refined carbohydrates like pasta and bread) in the same way they light up with drugs like heroin, especially for people who have higher tendencies toward addiction. If you feel "weak" around certain foods, it may be due to more than willpower...it may actually be that you have created an addiction without realizing. By recognizing this, you can take steps to break the habit or addiction rather than beating yourself up the next time you "lose control" and wonder why you can't seem to stop eating.

    • Which foods are the most addicting? We have listed the top 10 commonly addictive foods. Is your biggest weakness in the countdown?
    • Top 10: White Bread It's made with refined flour, which has been stripped of the bran, the germ, and all of the nutrients normally present in bread.
    • Top 9: Donuts Science has proven the crazy-addictive potential of sugar.
    • Top 8: Pasta We eat way too much of this starchy childhood favorite— and then we drench it in butter, salt, and cheese
    • Top 7: Cake There's something irresistible about the spongy buoyancy of a sugary cake—and don't even get us started on frosting.
    • Top 6: Chips Chips are ridiculously high in fat and salt, but that doesn't stop with the notoriously greasy brands.
    • Top 5: Cookies According to a research review, merely seeing tempting food releases dopamine. Indulge and your brain gets a boost from that happy hormone, priming you to want more (and more, and more.)
    • Top 4: Chocolates According to a research chocoholics had physical, behavioral, and emotional responses to chocolate that closely resembled those of drug addicts to their drugs.
    • Top 3: French Fries French fries are a dieter's nightmare and a food industry's dream. They're the apex of the sugar-fat-salt triumvirate: salted, fatty, and with a touch of natural sugar.
    • Top 2: Candy The sugary foods you're exposed to in utero and throughout childhood make kids love—and crave—more sugar.
    • Top 1: Ice Cream Ice cream is the go-to breakup binge, the creamiest celebration treat, the perfect hot-summer-day refresher, the more comforting cold-winter-night snack.
