Junk food. They make it sound terrible by classifying it as, literally, garbage. And it’s just sad that something so good can be so bad for you.
Science tells us that food addiction, specifically to junk food, is a serious concern. And it doesn’t take a person with a degree to tell you that you have a problem—a junk food problem.
Shove your hand into that bag of potato chips and read on for the 8 signs that you’re dangerously dependent on junk food.
8. Crumbs on your keyboard
If you have to constantly blow off crumbs from your keyboard or wipe-off grease from your hand-held devices, then you must be addicted to junk food. Also, check your thumb and index finger if they’re stained. If they are, boy, you can skip this whole list, you’re definitely addicted to it. And stop licking your fingers!
7. Snacks aisle, table for one
If the cookies, chips and snacks aisle is your favorite section every time you hit the grocery store.
6. What party size?
There’s no “party size” for you. Every bag of chips, every pack of sweets, are all good for one—and are “inhaled”, if you must, within a few minutes. You find no need for clippers and sealers because there’s nothing to put away for later.
5. It’s your go-to food
You’ll just find every excuse to eat it. You regard to it as your “thinking food” when you need to get those brain juices flowing. It’s also your Comfort food, Reward food, Woke-up-late food, got-stuck-in-traffic food, Good Mood food, etc. It’s simply the choice food for anything that happens in your life.
