Omega-3 fatty acids are essential nutrients that we must get from our diets because our bodies cannot make them; they are crucial for early brain development, and there is much evidence that they promote cardiovascular health and cognitive function.
According to the latest research conducted on the subject, certain behaviors and attitudes associated with certain types of food, closely resemble addiction patterns. In the study, over five hundred participants identify the foods that contributed the most to their weight problems. Participants used the Yale Food Addiction Scale in defining their problem foods. Different food types had corresponding scores, which were then averaged for each participant before the foods were ranked from most to least problematic, relative to addiction-mimicking behaviors.
The foods that emerged as most distressing and physically uncomfortable are the highly processed, fatty and sugary types. These foods also tend to have high glycemic indices, which affect a person's blood sugar level after consuming the food. According to researchers, this is no coincidence. Several researches do provide hints that these certain food types can lead to behaviors and brain alterations which are often related to an alcohol or drug addiction diagnosis.

Food addiction as of today has not been recognized officially. Based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, it bears the most similarities with binge eating disorder.

Some amino acids can be made in the body and others can only be supplied by the diet -these are known as the essential amino acids. Some foods are better providers of these amino acids than others. Those which contain all the essential amino acids are known as "high biological value" foods e.g. milk and dairy foods, meat, eggs etc. Those which contain fewer of the essential amino acids are known as "low biological value" foods e.g. cereals, beans, lentils and nuts. However if a wide variety of foods are consumed in the correct proportions the different protein sources can work together to provide the ideal levels of the different amino acids
This could help change the world's approach to obesity treatment, which may not always be about reducing food intake, but rather using methods that are known to stop drug abuse, smoking and drinking.
