We know this.
We've posted our successes and failures here and have all discussed our diets.
Each of us has been an experiment of one and now here's an expensive, highly defined scientific experiment to prove what we knew anecdotally.
I like science. I like this study. I also like to eat.
I can say without a doubt that my out of control eating and weight gain of nine pounds in the past two months has been due to eating what I like to call "crap".
Bagels with cream cheese and ice cream reentered my kitchen. I let DH take the lead and I followed. Refined carbs is what his diet is all about. I caved my weakness to his routine and it's lead to a host of bad foods and cravings I haven't had in years.
Today I'm back to "normal" and what's in the house is what I should have. I know my general well being will improve and my horrible cravings will go away. I know what works best for my body.
I like the science too, I’m right there with you. Thanks for including the articles, I’ll read them later when I have more time. YaY for bringing back the foods that “work” for you...kryptonite in the home just isn’t okay when those blasted rabbit holes are tripping us up. It’s difficult to switch, you can do it. Honestly the way your body will feel makes it worth the cravings and irritation. When our knowing and doing hang out together, it’s a beautiful thing. Ask me how I know...hahaha.Time to wave bye, bye, bye to Miss Behaving.
