To back this up with science, a study published in 2010 in Nature Neuroscience about how fast food can reinforce addiction. Studying the eating behavior of rats after regularly feeding them fast food showed that the rats had become obese and refused to eat when served healthier foods. This is just one of the many reports indicating that high-calorie and high-fat fast food can build a dependency. A consistent healthy diet is easier to maintain because the taste buds and body break their dependence and enjoy the more nutritious foods, resulting in a healthy feeling. The key is building sustainable ways to keep a healthy diet and lifestyle so you will not crash back to your unhealthy habits.
