I've become convinced by my own experience, by seeing articles like 
Barbara's (below) and posts like Stefano's, Max's, and Ben's, and by the 
alarming statistic that to a first approximation, 100% of diets fail --

-- that there are addictive components to carbohydrate consumption, most 
particularly bread.

Inspired by all of your posts, I did some research, found some 
surprising facts, put them together, and wrote this article:

"Mechanisms of Sugar Addiction: Or, Why You're Addicted To Bread"

I'm very interested to hear what you think.
