"Food addiction" is characterized by symptoms such as loss of control over consumption, continued use despite negative consequences, and an inability to cut down despite the desire to do so. Addictive-like eating has been associated with increased impulsivity and emotional reactivity, which are similarly implicated in substance-use disorders. Thus, "food addiction" may share common behavioral attributes with other addictive disorders.
Here's a list of the foods, starting from the most addictive and working its way down:
2. Ice Cream
3. French Fries
Researchers found that processing, the quantity of refined carbohydrates and the rapid speed at which they are absorbed into the system are the most significant predictor of whether a particular food is associated with behavioral indicators of addictive-like eating. The study also found that foods with a high GL were especially related to addictive-like eating problems for individuals endorsing elevated symptoms of 'food addiction'.
