    This article is so true and the more you eat it then the more you crave it and it is such a viscous cycle! But the funny thing is that once you curb the habit you don't even want it anymore! It is the same with fast food...if you eat healthy when you go get some takeaways then it all of a sudden doesn't taste all that great! The hard part is getting to that stage but it IS possible!!!
