Junk Food or Fast Food, Should be Called, Engineered to Keep You Eating Designed Unhealthy Food

The end of overeating

I think the smell of fast food can make you fat! We all know the places of the fast food variety that you can smell from blocks away.  You get the scent and then start salivating.  Then you start thinking about eating some of this food.  And then, you start talking yourself into eating it.  Maybe a nice cheeseburger, hey, want fries with that?  Want to super size it?  All this food is engineered, the food is fat on salt on sugar, it’s designed to smell good and have pleasurable textures.  And it will keep us coming back for more.  These foods are made with a variety of things that we all crave, which are all combined to make us eat more of them.  It’s not fair, hell it is not really fare! It is chemistry and food combined with years of research, to get all of us to buy and eat like Pavlov’s dogs.  We can walk in or drive through, we can even have some of it delivered.  I don’t want to single out any specific outfit here, but you know what is good for you and what is not.  I recently was reading a book called “The end of overeating” by David A. Kessler, MD this book is all about this engineering of food, read this book!  After I read Kessler’s book, I went to see the film FOOD, Inc. and it is scary what is going on.  I suggest you check this book out, as well as this film. These fast food places don’t want you to know these things but, you should know these things.  We all need to eat to live and be healthy and the better the fuel we eat the healthier we are going to be.  My diet has changed and I am more aware as a result of these two influences.  I am thinner and healthier from reading this book, seeing this film, and staying away from the smell of fast food!

    Have you read Fast Food Nation? I don’t think I need to see Food Inc. after reading this book. Another one that uncovers the horrors of what we are putting into our mouths.
    Monday night 6 neighbors met at my house to discuss our plans for a community garden. I got inspired after growing Topsy Turvy tomatoes for the first time and just LOVED being able to grab a tomato from the front of my house, along with some herbs. Talked to neighbors about it, talked to the condo assn. and the condo board, and got permission to build one this year.
    We’re meeting again Monday night to further discuss the plan, costs and timeline. But I am looking forward to all that healthy eating again this year!
