identifies 10 neurophysiological pathways that can lead people to make food
choices subconsciously or, in some cases, automatically. These pathways
include reflexive and uncontrollable neurohormonal responses to food images,
cues, and smells; mirror neurons that cause people to imitate the eating
behavior of others without awareness; and limited cognitive capacity to make
informed decisions about food.
I think they're forgetting insulin resistance and carb hunger.
carbs good, fat bad, you need to go in for regrooving
<snip> People overconsume in response to environmental cues
and they lack insight into the extent to which their food choices and eating
behaviors are being manipulated by sophisticated advertising and marketing
techniques. They also have a limited capacity to sort through the
increasingly overwhelming mountains of information and claims about food
choices and, as a result, too often choose default option foods high in fat
and sugar that, when consumed routinely, lead to chronic diseases.
High carb, particularly HFCS, would be my suspects. But even here,
where HFCS isn't so much of a problem, most low fat foods are stuffed
with fast-carb fillers. Losing the high fat fear factor would be
YES!!! Strange how all these phsyiological dietary problems suddenly
mushroomed around the time of onset of the Healthy High Carb Low Fat
Diet, whatever the form of the (usually fast) carbs.
needs to act as a whole to reshape the environment to improve the quality
and quantity of food we obtain, since the present environment makes it too
difficult for most people to do by themselves. Regulations addressing food
cues, food availability, portion sizes, and advertising are needed.
Quality, I'd agree with. I don't see the point in more regulations...
Dumping the food pyramid would be a good step, IMO.
Or turning it upside down a la Harvard
