Fun Fact Friday: 12/18/15 Junk food is a Trigger food

Did you know that junk food is actually a trigger food that makes you want to eat more. . .and more?

According to Women’s Magazine, if you eat bacon, cheese and sugary foods, you trigger something in your brain that really pushes you to eat until you are stuffed and the need for more food lasts for up to 3 days. Can you  believe this? In fact, sugar seems to enhance our “memory storage” causing us to remember its deliciousness during special occasions pushing us to want it. It is also stated that such foods trigger endorphins, making us feel OH SO GOOD inside! What an interesting fact right before the Christmas celebrations.
