Ever wonder why you couldn't seem to put down the fork? This is one more reason I really limit processed food in my diet - those sneaky buggers!

    I read this entire (mostly boring) book- some eye opening stuff in there but no huge surprises.
I can certainly see now who people who eat out a lot (not me) cannot control their weight.
The chapters on restaurant and process foods were downright shocking!

    That's so funny - as I work my way backward in your blog I was thinking the same thing while reading tomorrow's entry - LOL. I'm not even gonna read the article, I just know YOU have control over what neurotransmitters you push/pull. Make sure your hormones are tight, and drink your water. (... and if I could in really small font, I'd say, "go paleo!" emphasis on veg and meat)

    Doesn't completely surprise me. I know once I start on a "little snack" there are times when there's no stopping me.

    That doesn't surprise me. It is eye opening though. I think the tides are turning against the junk food. Like the cigarettes he mentioned it will take awhile to get everyone on board, but it can be done. It can start with us! emoticon

    Isn't that terrifyingly amazing? I saw a similar article about that study in a mag in my chiro's office. It sure made sense to me!
