Food addictions and insulin response
When I met Tim Noakes a few weeks back, he told me that 50% of EDs are caused by food addictions. What I'm wondering is - are food addictions caused by the food stuff, or by the psychological addiction to the insulin response? Traces are most drugs leave your system within two weeks, so I'm guessing that addictive foodstuffs like sugar and wheat would be the same, yet the cravings for them last much longer.
Recently I find myself craving foods like yogurt and nuts - and I noticed that yogurt has one of the highest insulin responses of all foods!
What do you guys think? If the addictions are based on insulin sensitivity, then perhaps it's why so many people struggle to get over their food addictions.
