This Is Your Brain On Junk Food

This Is Your Brain On Junk Food | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it
Food companies are spending millions of dollars to design foods with addictive sensations. What can you and I do about it? Is there any way to counteract the money, the science, and the advertising behind the junk food industry?

Learn how food scientists and manufacturers have created food addictions by design and read tips to counter the cravings including the "outer ring strategy" and "5 ingredient rule".

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, November 18, 2013 7:48 PM

Read how the food companies trick you into craving junk food by making certain foods more addictive and tasty than others.

 

Steven Witherly, a food scientist has spent the last 20 years studying the why of addictive junk food. Read the entire article to get links to his excellent report, "Why Humans Like Junk Food".

 

Witherly says there are 2 factors that make eating pleasurable: one is the sensation of eating the food. This includes tastes, smell, and mouthfeel - which is very important. Food companies spend millions of dollars to discover the satisfying level of crunch in a potato chip or the perfect amount of fizzle in a soda. These factors all combine to create the food your brain craves.

 

The second factor is the actual macronutrient makeup of the food - blend of proteins, carbs, and fats it contains. And in the case of junk food, the manufacturers are looking for the perfect combination of salt, sugar, and fat that excites your brain, and gets you coming back for more.

 

So what can you do about this craving because as you probably know by now, junk food is unhealthy and causes a myriad of chronic diseases, weight gain, obesity, and even death in certain individuals. 

 

As you begin eating less and less processed foods, you begin to go through a transition period known as "gene reprogramming".

 

Best strategy is to avoid buying these products. If you can't do that then try to reduce the amount you buy/eat by using his strategies.

 

"Outer ring" and "5 ingredient rule". 

Shop on the outer ring of the grocery store where the produce section is located and the eggs, meats, fish etc. Remember you're really wanting real whole food, food that you're body recognizes, and food that serves your body.

 

.If the product has more than 5 ingredients, then put it back on the shelf. It most likely is trying to trick you into buying.

 

Eat a variety of foods and eat Rainbow Foods. These are the foods that contain the antioxidants, the phytonutrients, the minerals, and vitamins that your body craves.

 

Instead of eating a chip with a dip of unknown ingredients. try eating carrots, celery, red, orange peppers with hummus or nut butters. You'll still get the crunch and your body will thank you by keeping you healthy. Just remember to chew slowly and you'll get a great mouthfeel. Plus your digestive system will be happy.

 

And there are better alternatives to handling stress than eating junk foods which really do not comfort you in the long run. Listen to music you like, get up and dance with your special ones, breathe deeply and let out a pleasurable sound, try yoga, meditation, take a nature walk, sing in the shower, laugh for no reason - a great stress reducer, help someone else and you'll forget your problems.

From the Article:  You do not need to “be seen” before pursuing your ideas. Enjoy yourself. Work. Create. Add value. Do what you can, consider everything an experiment to be held lightly, and then see what it leads to. Trust that in the doing, you are learning and growing, and being powerful. While it is quite possible you will be left “unseen” by some of society, at least you’ll see yourself. In this way, power stretches to become dignity.

Despite dyslexia, I went back to college and earned my Masters in psychology. Looking at me now, you’d think I’d been handed my accomplishments on a silver platter, but this is not the case.

9 Ways to Become an Optimist

9 Ways to Become an Optimist | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it

Some people are more optimistic by nature, but optimism is not a fixed attribute.  It’s a choice we have control over.  Every morning, we either choose to wake up grumpy or wake up with a positive outlook.  Research has shown that, in the long run, optimistic people handle stress better, get sick less often, live longer, and are happier and more successful than their pessimistic counterparts.

 

The good news is that we can all develop skills to improve optimism.  Here are nine ideas to get you started:

I resonate with the last 2: spend money on experiences and follow your dreams. When we got married I turned down the diamond ring that I probably would have lost years ago in favor of a 2 week honeymoon. We still talk about it some 30 years later.

 

It's taken me longer to follow my dreams, but I have started a new career in my late 50s as a health coach helping America get more healthy through developing and executing corporate wellness programs.
