    Yet how often do we hear a dieter say, "I was craving chocolate, so I bought a bag of Snickers, thinking I would only eat one. But I ate the whole bag. I can't believe how "bad" I was." There's a reason.
    I've experienced that myself when eating conventional candy; there is a new book explaining why that happens: Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us: Michael Moss: 9781400069804: Amazon.com: Books

    the food manufacturers figure out the "bliss point" of ingredients, so that you just can't stop eating the crap.

    RE: snickers salad - that is completely insane, and even more scary that people would make and eat it as if it's not a sick joke...

    Was she actually out of breath, opening that package of grated carrots? What a sad video.

    I did get a kick out of the captions carefully telling us how much fat there was in everything. How about how much SUGAR!? Sweetened condensed milk in macaroni salad? Wait, how can we make it MORE carby!?

    Eating a ton of processed sugar just messes up your taste buds. Everything just is sweet, but doesn't register as cloying anymore. Every so often I have a baked good and I LOVE a good real french pastry with butter. The bakery around the corner from me uses a lot of butter, and not a lot of sugar and they are so good. There is a lot of depth of flavor to the pastries- caramelization, butter, crisp, sweet, salty and despite being a pastry, it's a "whole" flavor experience.

    So many processed items are just almost anemic in their sugar. You never get any other flavor profile- no fat, no salt, no contrast. It's really just like an easy hit of a drug without complexity.

    The really sad thing is, some poor schmuck is eating that snickers crap, and going "Hey, I am healthy, I am eating a salad!"
