We think about food. We worry about the fat content. We worry about the carb content. We . . . could go on and on.
Not only do we think about it, it’s shoved in our face. Commercials claim that Snickers will satisfy us. Pringles challenges us with, “once you pop, you just can’t stop.” And we’ve never seen more idealistically happy people than the ones standing in their backyard around the grill, the kids clean, and the picket-fenced yard keeping the neighbor’s dogs at bay.
Psst. Guess what. They’re COMMERCIALS.
Of course they’re going to try to sell us something. They’re not going to show us the obese woman who can eat a single can of Pringles through one sitcom. They aren’t going to show us the person in the checkout who fidgets, looks away, and then finally grabs the candy bar – or two – and throws them on the conveyor belt. They’re not going to show us the chemistry behind their inventions that was created specifically to make our body CRAVE that perfect salty, crunchy snack. (source)
They’re just glad we buy it. For them that’s the end of the story.
But with the rate of obesity, heart disease, and diabetes climbing higher, and our health declining each year, it makes sense to stop the mindless eating we so often do. . .and start feeding our bodies the nutrient-dense foods it NEEDS.
