A new study shows how breakfast cereals, biscuits, and chicken nuggets trigger food cravings.

Sugar Content: Many breakfast cereals and biscuits contain high levels of added sugars. These sugars can lead to rapid spikes and drops in blood sugar levels, triggering cravings for more sugary foods to restore energy levels. 

Highly Processed Ingredients: Processed foods often lack essential nutrients and contain additives that can affect hunger regulation, leading to increased cravings. 

Rapid Digestion: Foods like breakfast cereals and biscuits are often low in fiber and high in simple carbohydrates, which can be digested quickly, leading to a quicker return of hunger and cravings 

Flavor Enhancers: These foods are often designed to have flavors that are appealing and sometimes addictive, leading to a desire to consume more. 

Brain Response: Certain foods, especially those high in sugar and unhealthy fats, can activate the brain's reward system, leading to cravings and a desire for more of those foods. 

Portion Control Difficulty: Highly processed foods can be easy to overconsume due to their taste and texture, which can lead to increased cravings for more of these foods. 

Habit Formation: Regular consumption of these foods can create habits and cravings, making it harder to resist them 

Marketing and Advertising: The way these foods are marketed, with appealing packaging and advertising, can create cravings and desires to consume them.
