Over the years with Slender For Life™ I have read various studies blaming the many diverse food options that we have available today for obesity. There is much to be said for eating simply and yet healthily. I am a big believer that food should taste really great and I am a big believer in cooking in large quantities and then eating left overs for several days. John and Mary McDougall have also created Mary’s Mini Diet which is based on eating the same basic foods for 10 days – the result is that you lose 10 pounds in 10 days. You don’t want to do Mary’s Diet long-term, but eating healthy can be be simple and delicious.
Diverse Food Options Blamed
For Rising Obesity
Relaxnews, Monday, July 25, 2011: Variety may be the spice of life, but scientists are now saying it could also be the reason why the US is so fat. Researchers are increasingly backing a theory that blames the variety and sheer abundance of food choices for the obesity epidemic.
In an editorial to be published in the August edition of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers out of the University of Florida suggest that diversity in menus could be promoting excess consumption, especially among those who treat food like an addiction.
“Clearly, school-lunch planners and public health officials should note that diversity in the menu is not necessarily a virtue, and in fact may be associated with promoting excess food intake and increased body mass index,” wrote co-authors Nicole Avena and Mark Gold. The researchers penned the editorial in response to a study published in May which showed that people lose interest in food and reduce their consumption when they are repeatedly exposed to the same item – a behavior known as habituation.
Sometimes I hear from clients that they don’t want to give up the food that made them fat. They are so afraid of discomfort that they become unwilling to consider any changes. One man recently said that he wouldn’t even consider a dinner without meat. If that sounds like you, consider hypnosis to change those rigid beliefs and habits that made you fat.
