What's your favourite Cheese and are you addicted?
I'm addicted to everything with cheese. I can't help myself when it comes to food. There will always be cheese even if it's in powdered form. I will even go as far as to wrap a boiled egg in it. Strange I know 😶. All this madness to cheese addiction actually has a scientific reason and your body craving certain proteins all the time.
Crazy fact: Cheese, with its impossible-to-resist combination of fat, salt, and creaminess, certainly feels like it could be addictive. It would explain why that second (or third, or fourth) slice of pizza calls to you so loudly, even after you think you’re full. With a growing body of evidence, food can have addictive qualities, it’s worth revisiting the offhand way you (may) say, “Oh my word, I’m, like, seriously addicted to cheese,” after crushing an entire block of extra-sharp cheddar before dinner, and why it matters.
Cheese is "dairy crack"It turns out that cheese really is kinda sorta like dairy crack since your brain reads a component of cheese as an addictive substance. The culprit is casein, a protein in dairy that gets super concentrated during the cheesemaking process. When you eat a hunk of Roquefort or a slice of Brie, your body has to break down the casein contained therein.
It turns out that the human brain evolved to really, really, really enjoy fat, especially when combined with salt. Fat is a calorie-dense substance, which makes it attractive to a hunter-gatherer type always in need of efficient energy sources.
In cheese, we get massive concentrations of fat and salt, which are highly evolved brains that continue to love. Combine this with the opioid-like casomorphins, and cheese suddenly goes from “very delicious” to “obscenely tempting.”
So the question here is, am I the only one who has this addiction and having a cheesy keyboard while gaming? Call of Duty Pizza weekends is the best. 😀🍕
