My mid morning snack
My friends and I like to go to the grocery store near by and stock up on junk food and a few movies for the night, but this time as we headed to the checkout counter I had these berries in hand instead of junk, and I’m proud of myself for making a good choice :)
when a person eats, the pleasure center in their brain is activated. For most people, eating a certain amount of food creates a good amount of pleasure. However, for some people, eating that same amount of food only activates one third of that pleasure. therefore, they eat three times as much as is necessary in order to get the same amount of pleasure that most people get with less. Studies have shown that people who are overweight or obese are almost always the people whose brains activate less of the pleasure center. Overweight people are not ’lazy’, sometimes it truly is a chemical imbalance. If you think that you may have this problem, don’t worry, it’s one hundred percent possible to overcome. All you have to do is rewire your brain by learning to equate healthier and smaller amounts of food with health and happiness. Being aware of your relationship and possible problems with food is half of the battle. Good luck everyone!
