Are there foods you can't get enough of, not because they taste so good, but because they don't hit the spot?

I have just done it with chicken and dumplings. It's good, but I can't get enough and eat it until my glucose gets too high.

None of them.

all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

I'm not sure what the question even means.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

If it doesn't taste good, why is it addictive?

It does taste good; it is implied in the OP. It doesn't satisfy you, though. So you have to eat more and more, trying to get satisfied.

It tastes good but it's not satisfying.

Ah, well that's the "magic" of carbs.

Ditto. The only thing that's maybe coming to mind for me is peanuts. I love the taste of the nuts, but I just don't get satisfied by the whole nuts as I do from peanut butter. But it's not like I'll eat more and more of the nuts to get satisfied; I usually stop because I know I won't get satisfied.

A lot of snack foods are designed to be addictive. Just tasty enough to make you always want a little more. I don't know what to add to chicken and dumplings to make it more satisfying, a tablespoon poultry seasoning, pepper, and salt...

Doctors are working on what gets triggered when you eat. Hopefully it will result in some real advances in weight control but I expect it to be another 20 years before the obesity epidemic starts turning around.

I agree, given the affect of COVID on eating and exercising, unless COVID consquences were implied in the 'epidemic' of your post, rendering this one unnecessary.
