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.
