Chocolate, has opiate effect. Its no bad compared too sugar. A little dark chocolate 70% or more may even provide health benefit.
Cheese. Huge development and supply of plant based options are available. Why is cheese really one of the strongest captors? Dr Bernard believes a chemical called “ Casomorphins” an opiate, actually constipates you if you over eat it and seems to have a narcotic affect. Dairy can imprison you because of casein found in plentiful amounts. Are you a POW? Meat. You guessed it opiates surround you making you surrender!
