Hello! How’s it going?
Then, I ate lunch during a conference call and then met Skinny Runner for a lunchtime walk
Mid-afternoon I found myself scrounging around the kitchen for a snack. I had less than 2 Tb. of sunflower seed butter in the jar and decided to scrape it out. But, the bottom of the nut butter jar is always so hard, right?
Last night I read an article about Food Addiction in the IDEA Fitness Journal. I joke about being addicted to cereal or fro-yo, but it’s science. Hyper-palatable foods that are filled with sugar, starch, salt and/or fat are compared to drugs in how our brain responds to them. I don’t have any ‘off limits’ foods, but I do try to keep certain foods out of the house because the dopamine makes me want to eat them all.
I don’t beat myself up if I overdo it with a “hyper-palatable” food because I realize this and I choose to handle it in a way that works for me. But, I wanted to pass it on in case anyone else was interested…
