A thought came to me earlier....

We all know fast food is bad for us, but we can't help but indulge on it from time to time. Why? It actually makes us happy it changes our brain chemistry a bit. Let me explain....no to difficult let me sum up.....If you've ever taken ecstasy I'm sure you know how it works it pretty much releases all your serotonin from your brain at once giving you that euphoria feeling for hours on end, fast food works the same way. Over the years, our body became accustom to getting the fast food in small quantities, once a week, once a month. Ever notice how you feel better after you've had some of your favorite fast food? Your body considers it pleasurable and releases the same serotonin though not in the same quantities as if you took ecstasy, your brain/body is considering this a treat. Which is the reason why you feel good when you're eating or done eating the junk food, and after a couple of hours your feeling a semi crashing effect. Once again not as bad as if you were to take ecstasy. I'm not going to lie for some reason McDonalds french fries are my weakness, I consider them fried crack. Yea that was my thought for the day, think of your favorite type of fast food as a drug! lol

I had no clue what to write about today, since my day was pretty uneventful, so I did that! lol Trust me I'm full of useless info. That being some of it.

Enjoy Monty for tonight though!

  1. Hmm in all honesty, I feel terrible after fast food. I think I have built up such a defensive sub-conscious towards fast food that a McDonald's burger is really quite unappealing. however, I cannot say the same thing for all fast food. And pop, my body still enjoys pop in small amounts.

  3. damn, now you've got me thinking about MDMA. it's my favorite drug by far, and i definitely understand your reference to fast food with regard to seratonin release. i get the same effect when having a mcflurry or some other dessert.
