    Food makes you happy, or as it said, food is heaven. I guess that's why so many people are addicted to food, because pursue happiness is human nature.

    There are lots of things in the world which could make you happy, take travel first. travel around the world, see different things & different people, enjoy different food, should make every human being happy. however, travel around the world requires money and free time, not everyone in the world is lucky enough to have financial freedom to take travel as their lifestyle or can do it on daily basis. take sex as another factor which makes people happy. to have good sex you need to get a partner enrolled & be good at handling relationship, otherwise you may end up with painful relationship which might give you anything but happiness.

    Compare to other means of making people happy, food is much more easier to access, no matter what is your income level, you can always find suitable food to entertain yourself, you can do it on daily basis, without other people's enrollment. you can find real equality in food, you feel happy when you are eating good food, or even by cooking food you are already in heaven.

    That's why so many people be addicted to food and be overweight. food makes you happy, but too much food make you obese and unhealthy, you end up unhappy about yourself and your life after all.

    monosodium glutamate or m.s.g. is a chemical additive that makes food taste salty and stimulates the part of the brain that makes you want to keep eating. Some people are more sensitive to this than others. It's in everything these days, even icecream. It used to come from seaweed but today it is entirely artificially produced.

    food that makes you hungry:
    • white processed flour and their various products (buns, pasta, bread)
    • sugar causes a huge insulin spike and then, paradoxically, low blood sugar making you want to eat again
    • m.s.g. chemical that acts on the brain to stimulate appetite.
