In this video, we’re going to talk about why french fries are addictive—especially from fast-food restaurants.

What’s in french fries?
• Fried potatoes
• Vegetable oil (corn, canola)
• Natural beef flavoring (wheat, milk)
• Dextrose
• Salt 
• Citric acid
• TBHQ – preservative
• Sodium acid (pyrophosphate – color)

The big problem is that when you consume a french fry, you stimulate neurotransmitters in your brain. You actually stimulate the part of the brain that is involved in addictions. This part of the brain will increase the pleasure neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin. 

When you add ketchup, you’re also adding high fructose corn syrup with additional corn syrup, which will exaggerate the effects of french fries on your blood sugars.

Glycation is the binding of a sugar molecule with a fat or a sugar molecule with a protein.

• Decreases elasticity within your arteries, veins, and tendons
• Clogs up certain connections in the brain
• Creates sticky proteins in the body which accelerates aging 
• Creates bloating
• Spikes insulin
