Ian Brown has published a terrific article today in the Toronto Globe and Mail, highlighting the reality that most of us make over 200 food decisions a day.
And explaining (see 3:45 p.m.) the brain science which makes it so hard to sustain good food choices all day long.
And reminding us that 200 extra calories a day means 20 extra pounds a year.
It doesn't take many poor food decisions to generate that extra 200 calories! Thank goodness the Spark Nutrition tracker makes it possible to track today what we're going to eat tomorrow . . . which helps eliminate a whole lot of "on-the-fly" decision making.
Gonna have that brownie? No choice. It's already been decided what I'm going to eat today. And entered into my food tracker.
Engineering "no choice" is the best choice to sustain weight loss.
