Addicted to Sweets

If you're too fat, you need to figure out why before you can lose weight successfully. Scientists have discovered that stress makes us eat too much?especially sugar. It's actually another form of addiction, just like being addicted to gambling, cigarettes, drugs or alcohol.

Psychologist Kent Berridge discovered that rats that are put under stress develop a craving for sugar. He says, "There are lots of reasons why stressed people might over eat or gamble or chase after hedonic rewards. Unfortunately this new result reveals another one. People who feel bad during stress cope in part by overeating or pursuing other incentives. Now it turns out a stress chemical also activates the same brain mechanism that goes wrong in drug addiction to make us excessively want pleasurable things."
