High fructose corn syrup causes pulses of dopamine, the brain's pleasure chemical, to be released in the brain's pleasure center, the nucleus accumbens.

This is what cocaine does too.

Fighting this kind of addiction biochemistry in the brain is very hard for people to do!  I see sugar as one of the most addictive substances people use.  Success in losing weight is about 5%, about the same for addicts using cocaine, crystal methamphetamine and alcohol.

So when diet programs are shown to work, that's great news!

This article compares Weight Watchers and other programs.  It shows all programs worked.  After one year, people lost the most weight who stayed with the program.  The programs didn't differ much from each other in the amount of weight loss.

So, the take home message is try different programs.  Find one that works for you and stick with it!
