The Most Addictive Foods Ranked

There's been some research done to find the most addictive foods.

The results are about as surprising as finding out people like naps and compliments on their hair.

University of Michigan researchers described addictive food as loss of control over consumption, continued use despite negative consequences and an inability to cut down despite the desire to do so.

So basically the same way you would describe crack, and Nicholas Cage movies.

They surveyed 504 people to find out what they thought was the most addicting food. Of course the top choices were processed foods because our body reacts to them like they're drugs.

The survey was actually broken into two different surveys. The biggest one listed 35 foods for people to rank on a scale of 1-7.

It found carrots, cucumbers and beans were the least addicting meanwhile the top three were french fries, chocolate and of course pizza. About pizza they said it's capable of triggering an addictive response that may lead to unintentional overeating.

But in most cases let's be honest, eating pizza is an oasis of joy in our daily slow slog toward our graves.

So overeating is completely intentional.
