Do you believe yourself to be a food or sugar addiction?
Or, do you believe in food or sugar addiction, generally speaking?
Please don't take this post as a personal attack ...
But in this post I detail:
1. why science studies showing sugar addiction in rats all flawed 2. why sugar and food addiction appear to be real but are not actually real 3. how I used to think I was a marijuana addict but now I don't
The short answer is deprivation causes cravings. Once you give into cravings, you erroneously conclude you are a sugar addict. However, the deprivation caused the cravings in the first place. You were deprived.
For example - rats can become addicted to cocaine. But rats in scientific studies that become addicted to cocaine are lacking in basic resources like companionship.
Rats that have plenty of room, mates, good light, and food options never become addicted to cocaine.
The same is true is humans.
I have used these principles to end my struggle with weed after years of thinking I was an addict. It's not that I don't smoke, although my smoking is less than it ever has been. The main thing is that I'm not battling myself anymore around weed.
It's not the tug of war on the back of my mind, even when I am not smoking weed. It's not a battle. So, yeah, that is really nice lol.
So ... these concepts work. They are untraditional as f*** but I guess that's the whole point of eating enlightenment.
For the scientific studies I mention in the video, I have provided pictures and links at this link here: https://eatingenlightenment.com/pictures
