Milk and ice cream have almost a drug-like effect on me.
What's funny is, when I was little I was allergic to dairy products!
I heard that autistics can get 'addicted' to foods that they're allergic to (because it gives them a "high"?).
What's your experience?

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Update:

Can you guess why carbohydrates and dairy make so many of us feel so good?

Jenny McCarthy stated in her most recent People Magazine article that an autistic person's digestive system turns wheat and dairy into opiates, making us stoned or drunk. That's why mothers of autistic children nowadays are removing wheat and dairy products from their child's diet-- because they don't want them to be stoned or drunk all the time.

Go figure.

Hot chocolate. It makes me feel warm and safe for some reason.

Golden delicious apples and ice water do it for me. Healthy foods always bring me back up when I'm down. Don't get me wrong, I eat more junk food than anything else, but I feel better when I eat things that are good for me.

something with peanut butter and milk. PB&J sandwich, reeses peanut butter cups, any one of the other numerous other candies or deserts with peanut butter. Never spooning peanut butter outta the jar, though I did that as a kid a lot, now it needs some sort of other medium like chocalate, cookie or ice cream =P.

kinda amusing that more than a few of us have stated dairy. Just a socialogical attachment to milk since it is such a vital part of your infancy? or something more?

It was squid.

Then I became allergic to it (numb tongue to being unable to breathe).

Something or someone hates me.

Junk food is like Euphoria to me. Examples are pizza, chocolate, jam doughnuts, icecream, chips, burgers.

Why is all the nice food so bad for you >_<
