A solution for your symptoms of cravings for wheat only at Dr. Restivo, our very sophistically designed product – the chip craving drops.

The gluten connection to compulsive overeating

Many of us eat breakfast, for instance, then have less desire for food until dinner sometimes. Or you have a healthy lunch at noon, then skip dinner. In other words, the incessant, rolling, rumbling hunger that plagues modern people that can account for aggressive, even anger, food quests simply goes away and you are left with a soft reminder that it might be nice to eat sometime in the next few hours.

If you are following this lifestyle properly, you must not be experiencing hunger and cravings, say, 2 hours after a meal, or feel desperate hunger prior to every meal, or wake up in the middle of the night craving to eat something.

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, barley, oats, spelt and Kamut. Common gluten-containing foods are breads, cereals, pasta, bagels, muffins and cookies. Gluten provides elasticity to dough, which helps the dough rise and gives the baked good a fluffy, chewy texture. 

Gluten cravings and its effects

  1. Gluten makes your blood sugar rise quickly which lead to compulsive overeating

Wheat has become one of the most high glycemic foods one consumes. For instance, two slices of bread raise your blood sugar higher than two tablespoons of table sugar.

Alarming right? If your blood sugar spikes from gluten-containing foods, like whole wheat bread, your blood sugar drops dramatically too, which often leads to such cravings and addictive eating.

  1. The mind-altering effects that lead to compulsive overeating

Foods that have a high level of gluten, like wheat, can increase your appetite. Consuming gluten truly makes you want to eat more processed foods (cookies, cupcakes, pretzels, candy, soft drinks, pizza, muffins and sandwiches). Studies report that people who consume gluten eat an average of 400 more calories per day.

In addition to the extra calories, for some people gluten can act like a drug, causing peculiar drug-like neurological effects. They say, morphine-like compounds created from the digestion of gluten pass through the blood-brain barrier and have the potential to generate euphoria, addictive behaviour and appetite stimulation.
