The topic is how compulsive consume of modern foods is similar to addictive drug abuse. The claims are backed up by studies. The conclusion:
FINALLY, IN ORDER TO PREVENT THE COMPULSIVE EATING THAT THE STUDIES NOW COMPARE TO AN ADDICTIVE BIOCHEMICAL MECHANISM WITH COCAINE AND HEROIN, THE MEDICAL PROFESSION ALONG WITH ALL GOVERNMENTAL FOOD AND HEALTH AUTHORITIES MUST REALIZE THAT IN ORDER TO CURE OBESITY AND SUPPORT OUR HEALTH, THEY MUST NOW REJECT THE PREVAILING AND WRONG DOGMA. THIS WAS FIRST PUT FORWARD BY ANCEL KEYS. HE WAS THE PRIMARY ADVOCATE FOR A LOW SATURATED FAT AND HIGH CARBOHYDRATE LIFESTYLE. IT IS NOW TIME FOR A NEW PARADIGM, ONE WHICH PROMOTES A HEALTH SUPPORTING HIGH SATURATED FAT AND VERY LOW CARBOHYDRATE EVOLUTIONARY LIFESTYLE. THIS WILL CURE COMPULSIVE EATING AND THE ABOVE MENTIONED ADDICTIVE BEHAVIOR.

I highly recommend reading this. If you want to dive deeper into the topic of nutrition, watch Why we get Fat: Adiposity 101 and the Alternative Hypothesis of Obesity. It is an incredibly valuable lecture by Garry Taubes! He has also written the book "Good Calories Bad Calories" which is a very good book on the topic!
