Study Reveals Possible Connection Between High Fructose Corn Syrup And Opioid Addiction

  Study Reveals Possible Connection Between High Fructose Corn Syrup And Opioid Addiction New research shows an interesting interplay between high fructose corn syrup and oxycodone in the brains of rats, with revealing insights for humans taking opioids.Previous research has shown that high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) impacts the brain in a way similar to addictive drugs. It triggers a “reward response” in the brain’s reward circuitry that leads to continued cravings, in much the same way as a narcotic. These similarities have led researchers to wonder whether diets high in HFCS may play a role in opioid dependence.

Lowe said the Atkins diet is a good fit for him because he was basically following the eating habits on his own for years before. The Atkins diet is a nutritional plan that promotes eating high-protein, low-sugar, and low-carb foods. Atkins is looking to extend their brand beyond weight loss into a healthy routine. 

"Having a healthy lifestyle and trying to eat well has been a natural part of my life for a long, long time," Lowe said. "So when [Atkins] asked me to partner with them to help remind people that it was a lifestyle, not necessarily a diet, it was a really good fit. That's what I've been doing anyway."

What Really Happens to Your Body When You Eat Fast

  What Really Happens to Your Body When You Eat Fast Watching what you eat can be easier said than done, but a recent study shows it might not just be about what’s on your plate—it could be about how quickly it disappears. Japanese researchers followed 1,083 adults for five years, splitting them into three categories based on how quickly they ate: slow, normal, and fast. They also answered a questionnaire at the beginning of the study, sharing their diets, physical activity, and medical history.

"I know that there are days where I'm going to want comfort food and to watch the Super Bowl and have nachos and stuff like that," he said. "But I don't beat myself up about it because I know overall that this long-term lifestyle commitment for me is always going to be fine."

The best way to maintain a healthy lifestyle, Lowe said, is to simply take each day at a time.

"You don't have to make any big sweeping commitments. Just do the best you can do for yourself today," he said. "Worry about tomorrow, tomorrow. Then you look back and all of a sudden you've strung together a lot of days where you've done the right things by yourself."
