Addictive Foods (according to science) & where to get them

Nope. It’s not only chocolate. Scientists created an addictiveness scale to identify foods that will turn you into a junkie. They rated how likely one was to experience problems with each of the 35 foods, on a scale from 1 (not at all addictive) to 7 (extremely addictive). 

According to IFLScience, 7–10% of participants were diagnosed with full-blown food addiction. What’s more, 92% of participants had compulsive eating behavior towards some foods.

Addictive Foods


Food addiction and compulsive eating behaviors are serious problems that certain foods are more likely to trigger. This is yet another reason to base your diet mostly on eating whole, single-ingredient foods. They release an appropriate amount of feel-good chemicals, while ensuring that you’re not overeating. In the end, YOU should control what foods you eat — not the other way around.
