So what exactly is a trigger food? That’s a big question with lots of answers. Trigger foods are those foods that once you start eating it you can’t stop. It could be chips, candy, ice cream, french fries or a myriad of other foods that have the enticing combination of salt, sugar, and fat.
They’re the foods that have two unique, yet soul destroying, qualities. They taste amazing – then leave you feeling awful after eating them. Physically or emotionally.
