In Michael Pollan’s book, In Defense of Food, he makes a case for why we should get back to eating like our great-great grandparents. The trendiness that has overcome the food industry has made us eat food that isn’t actually good for us just convenient for the food marketers and the journalists to promote. One of the fads that he writes about is the desire to want things that are non-fat. When we remove the fat in order to make things taste good we add sugar. Sugar, unlike whole fats, is addictive. It is just like a drug. I understand this. I crave sugar. I, like many people, am addicted to sugar. It would seem no matter how healthy I feel that I am eating I still crave sugar. Although I gave up eating non-fat foods over a year ago, I was still saddened to imagine that perhaps my craving for sugar was because of my long history of avoiding full-fat foods and replacing them with sugar. Now, when I crave sugar could it be that it is been a habit that I have lived with for so long that I will never be able to break it?
