Getting A Real Rush From Food

michele cindy | Mar 19, 2007 04:50 AM

On Saturday I made a big batch of chicken soup. I could not resist rendering the chicken fat, with some finely chopped onions and frying the liver in it. I knew eating this would wreck havoc with my cholesterol but decided to toss caution into the wind. It was so delicious, I really felt like I was doing an illicit drug or something. Even though I knew it was bad for me, I chilled the fat and now continue to eat it spread over rye bread sprinkled with some salt and pepper. Each time I eat it, I feel wonderful! I know as soon as I am done with it, that's it, my habit will be kicked, but for now I am in some sort of food high heaven.
I get a similar rush when I eat hot food, prepared with chili peppers, and I often crave it, but this was different, a bit more euphoric. Any other food rushes out there?
