As we go through life, we're constantly categorizing (whether consciously or subconsciously) everything that crosses our path. He is this. She is that. These are different. That's the same. Yet, where does this lead us? No day is ever the same. And it’s this sense of variety that most of us thrive on and live for. So, why is that when it comes to analyzing our eating habits, we feel the need to categorize them as either “good” or “bad”? Let's dig into this a bit further.
Remember the toys that are soon-to-be-banned from kids’ meals in San Francisco if the meals don’t meet certain nutritional guidelines? Well, that law is slated to take effect on December 1st, and now New York is looking to do something similar, but with slightly more stringent nutritional parameters.
Most of us have been guilty of giving that quick “sure!” response to that seemingly age old question: “Would you like to super size that?” It almost seems natural to expect nothing less than a liter of your favorite cola to be offered for “only a quarter more!” wherever you go these days. And many of us don’t think twice about getting the extra large order of fries. But how much is too much? And what part does this all play in the rising obesity trends in our country?
