Foods containing fat and carbs are manufactured foods usually containing large amounts of carbohydrates and seed oil fats. There are no “good” carbohydrates (sugar) and the fats are seed oils manipulated under high pressure and temperature and contain high levels of inflammatory omega 6 fatty acids. Each of these foods separately cause a dopamine release and together they provoke an even stronger dopamine response. Dopamine is a signalling hormone that results in a feeling of pleasure, this response also occurs with exercise and sexual encounters and thus powerfully reinforces behaviour.
