It’s not your fault.
Having addictions to certain foods and binge eating them is not your fault.
Food companies spend ridiculous amounts of money figuring out how to perfectly engineer foods so that you can’t stop eating them and develop cravings.
This is how they generate sales and profits.
Think for a minute about that chip slogan from years ago.
“I bet you just can’t have one!”
The chips were designed to keep you from just being able to eat 1!
A perfect example of this in action is from a show called “Man versus Food”.
There is an episode where he is challenge to eat like 2lbs of ice cream in under an hour.
Around the ½ way mark he is literally gagging on the ice cream and about to throw up.
It looks like he is about to lose the challenge.
So what does he do?
He orders a side of French fries and eats them.
(You can see this at the 1 minute and 10 second mark à https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cTMGFtNpN8)
Then he finishes the ice cream.
Think about that for a minute.
Here is a guy who is literally gagging to get the ice cream in his belly because he is that stuffed.
To get over this he actually eats MORE!!
Eating more food allowed him to eat more food.
But that’s what I’m getting at…..
Certain foods are engineered in a lab to make you want to eat more of them.
So it’s not your fault if you can’t “just have one”.
Now just because it isn’t our fault doesn’t mean we can’t do something about it.
Knowledge is power.
From now on lets take all of these boxed, pre-packaged, non-whole foods and remove them from the house.
Make it a literal trip to eat them.
You have to get out of your car, go to the store, buy them, and eat them in the car.
I bet you cut down your consumption a LOT!
In the end it’s not your fault but that doesn’t mean you can’t control your environment to take control of your life and waistline.
