    Plausible. It seems to be a food group that everyone I know agrees is unhealthy but it doesn't slow their consumption one bit.

    Good information, but information doesn't change anything.

    Well that explains all of the urges I used to get where I'd want to crush up some Chocolate Lucky Charms and smoke them...

    In all seriousness, I think that many people know that carbs are addictive but they think that they can't live without easy, quick, go-to foods like cereal, bread, pop tarts, canned soups, pasta, crackers, breaded meats, heat and eat items...yeah, it's also really hard to turn down biscuits and gravy, pancakes, potato chips, beer, soda...but hey, it's ultimately a choice.

    Either you want to be healthy, fit, and happy or you want to be bloated, sick, and mediocre. Most of us around here choose the first; the majority of society chooses the latter. Sad but true.

    I remember, I went on a 14 km hike once... halfway through I looked down and said "Pistachios." There was a trail of pistachio shells littering the trail all the way back to the car... XD

    If I had seen pistachios on the trail with nuts still in them I would have eaten them. I will admit to having eaten M&Ms and other candy I've found on the trail.
