Food is delicious, fun, emotional, imperative and stressful like everyone. For many, trying to maintain a healthy diet and exercise is a constant amusement park for success, failures, "deceptive days", zeroing, guilt and confusion.
Why, even when we try our best, is it so hard to just be healthy all the time?
Well, for starters, see above. The food is delicious. The temptation abounds, the labels lie and our bodies work mysteriously. When a person begins to eat oatmeal and stops drinking brown alcohol for three days to lose weight and to work it is enough to send a person (me) to a blade.
our core what it means to be healthy. This does not mean eating with a whim and does not mean quick fixes ̵
Sounds like a real piece of cake, huh?
But that's more than that. When you look at the many elements that struggle against us at any time, you may just find it time to take a break. Cat Cat Bar. Or an apple – whatever it is. So why is it so hard to eat well?
Because unhealthy food is scientifically irresistible. We were born with taste for both sweet and savory foods, and as Julie Kendrick reported on HuffPost in March, brands quickly took advantage of this fact. "Unhealthy foods have found this manufacturer's original equipment that we have issued and understood how to give us more and more precisely the flavors we are born to want," she writes.
Because fast food ads are pulling a quick one for you.
Fast-food ads affect your brain not only through ads, but also by releasing products and social media, and you may not be aware of them.
Science for Food and Addiction and the Healing Laboratory at the University of Michigan is currently conducting a study of 180 teens to determine how fast-food ads affect the brain rewards center. The fast-food ads that were shown proved to be more effective than other ads, and those who were most affected had more weight. "It's hard for people to defend themselves because it's not a conscious process," said Ashley Gearhard, who runs the study, about HuffPost.
Because it is, dear.
A pizza piece costs less than $ 5. A fantastic salad can cost more than $ 13.
Because there is a new "diet" every day.
Keto! Paleo! Whole30! Green Soup! It seems that everywhere you look, there is a new way of eating that is supposed to be the best. It is impossible to prove one way or another. Keto, for example, tears doctors and nutritionists between its effectiveness as a means of weakening and the potential negative long-term impact. Because even healthy choices are not always healthy . When it comes to sugar, soda and candy are the most obvious culprits that come to mind. But sugar also hides a healthier choice – from sandwiches to coffee-making cocktails. Add to this study, which suggests that sugar is more addictive than cocaine and the fact that too much sugar leads to health problems and, welp, you really can not win.
Because, frankly, some healthy foods are rough.
Cheese is one of the healthiest foods you do not consume – call it texture. Fortunately, there are many healthier, less unequal foods to include in your diet this way.
Because you are afraid of the wrong things.
We have gone a long way from the diet, but there are still some foods, namely fats that look scary. "Good" fats such as avocado, coconut oil and salmon are not just good for you, they are important for a meal to have a balanced diet.
But there is such a thing as too much a good thing. According to a nutritionist, the right amount of avocado that is eaten per day is half of one . Excuse us for reevaluating each toast of avocado bread we ate.
Because it's hard to do it alone.
The choice to eat a healthier diet involves planning, willpower, time and commitment. Its very impact may be excessive and may actually be less scientifically effective. A Washington Post study in 2013 examined a study involving overweight and obese diabetes type 2. t Participants were randomized to coaching and expertise weekly or only three times a year, and the results showed that those who participated weekly, lose more weight and reduce health risks than those who have less training and support.
Because it is in your blood.
We can not blame our parents for everything, including hunger, but studies show that there is some evidence that suggests that some genes influence preferences for sweet tastes while others influence preference for savory. And these taste buds, along with other genetic factors such as metabolism and body mass index, have an impact on our appetite. Tell him about me: THANK YOU, MOTHER AND DAY.
In the end, it takes time and dedication to eat well, and eating seems quite different for everyone. The hope is that in raising the roadside bumps forward, not only can you be a little bit more affectionate to yourself, but also remember them as they appear on your way.
