Tushon said:You certainly do not have to, but it is human nature to eat all on a plate. http://www.livestrong.com/article/15261-plate-size-important/TLDR: Adults eat less (and sometimes very much less) when given smaller plates and/or utensils. Children tend to eat the amount they feel appropriate, perhaps because they haven't been indoctrinated into "finish everything on your plate" referenced earlier in the thread.
MAGIC said:You keep citing articles that try to push the blame of unhealthy eating onto everyone but the consumer. Think before you put it in your body.
primesuspect said:there is a definite deep urge to have something like that as opposed to the healthier alternative. Why is that? Why does the thought of a five guys burger literally make my mouth water while thinking of a subway healthy choice make me go "meh"?
MAGIC said:I'll be the first to say I am fat due to my ignorance. I grew up in an unhealthy family so the bad habits started since I could chew solid food. Health education in school is well "look at this pyramid". I really didn't know what to do and for the most part didn't care until I realized how important image is in our society and how important knowledge and practice of good healthy habits are to a good life. Now that I am 5'10 210 lbs, but should be 170 and I know why. Health and the science behind what my body does with food has become a pretty big interest of mine. It is significantly harder to lose weight than it is to maintain it though. So, I am currently struggling to get my body fixed after a lifetime of abuse. I don't place a stich of blame on corn subsidies, fast food, serving sizes, or how good bad food tastes. It's all up to numero uno to make the decisions.
Annes said:If that's the discussion we're having, I'm fat due to absolute lack of willpower.
primesuspect said:There is just a certain kind of deep satisfaction that comes from a double quarter pounder with cheese that you don't get from a six-inch turkey sub on whole wheat. I can't explain it, and I'm not trying to make light of the situation; there is a definite deep urge to have something like that as opposed to the healthier alternative. Why is that? Why does the thought of a five guys burger literally make my mouth water while thinking of a subway healthy choice make me go "meh"?
