Microbes control your mind. Seriously. This is not hyperbole. INSERM's Nutrition, Gut and Brain Laboratory in France just confirmed this previously discovered phenomenon: http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2015-11/cp-gms111715.php. Other studies have shown that detrimental bacteria in our gut will cause a sense of unease (by irritating gut lining) when they have not received sugar for long periods of time. The irritation ceases when you feed them sugar, helping them proliferate in your gut, and further reinforcing for your own brain that you "feel good" when you have sugar.
In this particular research, scientists found that part of the reason we should wait 20 minutes after eating to see if we're full is because that is the length of time the now "full" bacteria have to signal your brain that they (and consequently you) are no longer hungry. They control you.
This isn't all bad. We want to feed bacteria... some of them anyway. By and large, some of the most archaic and helpful bacteria in our bodies feed off of ketones. You have been starving them and allowing your mind to be controlled by the baddies.
Maybe it'll be easier to put down that cinnamon roll, juice and cereal when you realize it's just to feed your bacterial overlords. Try periods of ketogenic nutrition, intermittent fasting, probiotics and fermented foods to retake your soul from the little brain washers.
