Study: Oreos are More Addictive Than Cocaine
Hi Glenda the Good Foodie,
Back in 2013, Forbes revealed scientific research which showed that Oreos could be more addictive than cocaine or heroin. This means it may be easier to kick a cocaine addiction than it is to let go of those double-stuffed sugar-bombs.
But it doesn’t stop there…
Food addiction isn’t just about Oreos. Yes, some people are hooked on junk food. But many so-called “health foods” can be just as addictive. For some folks, organic, stone-ground whole wheat bread, vegan black-bean brownies, or plain old chips and dip do the trick. Sound familiar?
My dear friend, Dr. Susan Peirce Thompson, has developed a 5-question Susceptibility Quiz to help you find out how likely you are to be addicted to food — and what you can do about it.
Find out where you are on the Susceptibility Scale by taking this short quiz.
After the quiz, Susan will give you your score, and a customized Food Freedom video to help you understand what it means for your life.
At the Food Revolution Network, we’re excited to be joining with Susan to bring this to you, because we think it’s breakthrough stuff.
Yours for food freedom,
P.S. The fact is, some people are more susceptible to food addictions than others. Take the quiz to see where you stand.

I have wanted to make my own outfit for the Black History program but I kept chickening out. This year I did it!

I felt so good that I trusted myself to try something I’d never done before.
Whenever you challenge yourself to do something different it most likely will feel uncomfortable. It takes courage to move forward through the fear or worry. It feels great once you follow through and just do it.
Today I went to a tattoo artist, and for $60 I let a man with a giant Jesus-tattoo on his head ink a semi-colon onto my wrist where it will stay until the day I die. By now, enough people have started asking questions that it made sense for me to start talking, and talking about things that aren’t particularly easy.
We’ll start here: a semi-colon is a place in a sentence where the author has the decision to stop with a period, but chooses not to. A semi-colon is a reminder to pause and then keep going.
In April I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. By the beginning of May I was popping anti-depressents every morning with a breakfast I could barely stomach. In June, I had to leave a job I’d wanted since I first set foot on this campus as an incoming freshmen because of my mental…
