American society abounds with diet tips. Every day it bombards me with articles and ads, promising to cure all my ills, or at least my fatness. The internet, print media, television shows and strangers on the street bombard me with simple ways I can achieve optimum weight and thus become the happy, healthy, and wonderful person I was born to be. Every thin person seems convinced that every fat person, regardless of the cause of their fatness, will become thin if they just take the stairs, drink more water and add kale to their diet.
"Several studies by professors of psychology at the University of Washing, Princeton University, the University of Los Andes, the Yale University School of Medicine and the National Institute on Drug Abuse have shown that the excess intake of sugar can produce what is called the endogenous opioid dependency. This means that the brain of a food addict is creating its own opium-like drug. He or she then experiences the same effects as if they had ingested any other opium-like substance." ~ Science of Food Addiction by Phil Werdell, M.A.
Wait. Food addiction is a thing?
It's not only real it works the same way as drug addiction?
Surely all these people who are worried about fat people’s health take that into consideration.
Let’s look at some common get-not fat healthy tips and see how they work with addiction. The following are real (and very common) tips from the internetwith food (especially sugary food) changed to the opioid drugs they become for addicted individuals.
Drink plenty of water or other calorie-free beverages.
Before you inject that dose of heroin, drink a glass of water first. People sometimes confuse thirst with withdrawal, so you can end up injecting extra drugs when an ice-cold glass of water is really all you needed. If plain water doesn't cut the cravings, try drinking flavored sparkling water or brewing a cup of fruit infused herbal tea.
Enjoy your favorite drugs.
Instead of cutting out your favorite drugs altogether, be a slim shopper, Buy one oxycodone instead of a whole bottle. You can still enjoy your favorite drugs — the key is moderation.
Take several mini-doses throughout the day.
If you take fewer drugs than you need, you will lose weight. But when you're craving all the time, taking fewer drugs can be a challenge. One obesity researcher recommends dividing your drug usage into smaller doses and enjoying most of them earlier in the day. Dinner should be the last time you dose.
Stock your stash with healthy, convenient drugs.
Having ready-to-use drugs and highs-in-minutes on hand sets you up for success. You'll be less likely to hit the opium dens or order from the skeezy dealer on the corner if you can throw together a healthy high in just a few minutes. Always keep essential low-dose drugs on hand.
Be choosy about nighttime drugs.
Mindless drug use occurs most frequently after dinner, when you finally sit down and relax. Smoking opium in front of the TV is one of the easiest ways to throw your recovery off course. Either close down the stash after a certain hour or allow yourself a low-opioid option like a 100 mg shot of codeine cough syrup.
I think they work, don't you? I feel much better knowing that all these strangers are giving me such spot-on advice. Time to go have a drink of water and a small dose of my favorite evening drug.
