while I commend this article as being absolutely true, I think we need to look at who allowed this to happen in the first place. Junk food is very cheap, in its manufacturing, ingredients, quality.For years and years it was available in our children's schools, and because we are second or third generation of both parents working and too busy to make a proper lunch, we and our children were given lunch money and told to spend it for food.
Once tasted, junk food, becomes a preference over fresh fruits and vegetables. Soda pop over milk and just good old water, every thing has to be sweet or salty.
Our brains become wired for any product that has these qualifications, and then we stand back in horror, when we look around ourselves as well as see our indulgences in a mirror.
This is not an excuse, but rather acknowledgement why a site like spark people is one of the best answers, they know these facts and are more than willing to help us that indulged.
They have the instructions and the ability to help any one REWIRE their brains, and that is why you see the wonderful success stories..
