The Point of No Return

Where fat, salt and sugar meet is a place that makes our toes curl in pleasure. But once you’re hooked, is there any going back?

“The trio of salt, fat and sugar in restaurant and processed foods conditions us to eat more, in a manner that changes our brain circuitry. Children may develop a pattern of overeating and obesity that they might retain for life.”

As someone who is a food addict and has struggled with obesity and self-image, I’ve known this for a long time. Obesity is not genetically predetermined as a lot of folks believe. Obese people are a product of their environment just like any other person who is trying to self-medicate for an emotional issue.

  • Less than 10% of daily caloric intake should come from saturated fat
  • Less than 25 g of added sugar per day
  • Less than 2300 mg of sodium per day
