(April 16, 2015)-  We all have those foods which we can’t stop eating.  The folks who put together the books, “Eat This Not That,” have ranked them.

Coming in at number five, Doritos.  If you can’t ditch Doritos, don’t be surprised. The recipe was reportedly created so that no single flavor overpowers another, which researchers say, means snackers don’t feel full.

“Eat This Not That,” suggests noshing on one serving of Beanitos Nacho Cheese White Bean Chips-which slows digestion and is free of MSG.

Number four: Cheetos.  Each puff is developed to melt the second it hits your tongue, tricking the brain into thinking you aren’t inhaling as many calories.

The suggested alternative? One serving of cheddar cheese flavored Blue Diamond Natural Almond Nut Thins, which are low in sodium and gluten-free.

Number three is no surprise. If your glass of  milk’s favorite cookie is the Oreo, you’re not alone. According to a 2013 research study, Oreos are more addictive than both cocaine and morphine.

“Eat This Not That,” recommends reaching for ‘Nothin’ But Chocolate Almond Granola Cookies.’  They are made with all natural ingredients.

A Swiss study found M&M’s are more satisfying to consumers because of how quickly they melt. The chocolate candy came in second. If you need an M&M stand-in, try the ‘Endangered Species Natural Dark chocolate with 88% Cocoa.’

Taking the number one spot of the most addictive food? The almighty French Fry.  French Fries have ranked as the top food associated with addictive eating behaviors.

So curb your fry fix another way-by baking homemade fries with coconut oil cooking spray and seasonings.
