Battle of the belly

Battle of the belly | Nutrition topics | Scoop.it

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, in 2012 based on self-reported BMI, 63 per cent of Australian males are overweight or obese. And Australian women? 48 per cent are overweight or obese. It's no longer a schoolyard taunt; it's a health fact – the girls are faring better than the boys, and it's time to do something about it.

What’s Healthier, Prison Food Or A School Lunch? [Infographic]

What’s Healthier, Prison Food Or A School Lunch? [Infographic] | Nutrition topics | Scoop.it

This infographic by GOOD shows the difference between a prison lunch and a school lunch. Both are roughly the same cost (just over $2.60) and contain about the same amount of calories (around 1400). But surprisingly, prisoners get more items to eat and healthier options, with 1/2 cup of vegetables and one serving of fruit or dessert, compared to the school children’s 1/2 cup of vegetables or fruit.

How to Fend Off a Food Craving

How to Fend Off a Food Craving | Nutrition topics | Scoop.it
New research challenges the body knows what it needs theory. What the siren call of that cupcake really means—and how to ignore it.

A cupcake is calling you.

Functional MRI scans showed that sensory memory food cravings activate the same parts of the brain that drug and alcohol cravings do, including the hippocampus, which helps store memories; the insula, involved in perception and emotion; and the caudate, which is important for learning and memory. The circuit is driven by dopamine, the neurotransmitter responsible for reward-driven learning.

Whether you pack a lunch or you purchase school lunch consider the amount of sugar you are getting with each serving. This is a great visual display of sugar content in foods. Also the revamped school lunch program. I want to go back to school to see if it really looks like this. I sure hope so, and I hope it comes from local farms.
