Eating too much? You can blame your brain.

Eating too much? You can blame your brain.
How brain signaling drives what you eat. (And what to do about it).

Ignore the ad at the end, article is good.

Additional article - https://www.precisionnutrition.com/why-you-cant-stop-overeating

"When processed food manufacturers evaluate a prospective food product, the “irresistibility” (the extent to which a person can’t stop eating a food) is more important even than taste!

Just think about the ease of eating whole foods versus processed foods:

Whole foods require about 25 chews per mouthful, which means that you have to slow down. When you slow down, your satiety signals keep pace with your eating and have a chance to tell you when you’ve had enough. Which is probably why you’ve never overeaten Brussel sprouts (also because, farting)."

1. It never ceases to amaze my wife and I

When we go grocery shopping how few people have actual ingredients in their carts. It's like no one actually cooks anymore; they just prepare and reheat.

2. To be fair, working full time and cooking more than a couple times a week has to be hard

 

unless you are super organized. I work from home and have no real demands in terms of a schedule, live 20 miles from town, and still eat way too much take-out.

I can't imagine working, dealing with kids, and doing full meals all the time. On the other hand I HAVE to have real food at least 50% of the time, and some of the take-out/prepared stuff has to be semi-real or I start feeling pretty shitty.

3. Get yourself one of these



A sous vide cooker. Put meat in in the morning, take it out when you get home. All you have to do is sear it. Perfect meat, cooked to any doneness you like, every single time. Steak dinner in 15 minutes or less.

The longer you leave it in the bath, the more tender it gets without overcooking.

We do that and portion vacuum seal vegetable sides with a little compound butter or other seasoning we can then in-bag steam in the microwave.

You'd almost sit in the drive through lane longer than it takes to prepare dinner.

4. My bigest problem is 3 large males in the house.

 

Anything has to be prepared in mass quantities and none care about subtleties. I wish Purina made something like man-chow in 100 lb bags.

I take that back - one of them wishes he could indulge in his rather expensive tastes for high quality ingredients and foods, but also still have mass quantities of it. He needs to work more hours. LOL

5. All you need then,

Is a larger container. I mean that seriously. Theoretically you could take a pain old Coleman cooler:



Cut a hole in the lid for the cooker to fit in, and load 4 chickens, or a quarter of a cow in there and it would cook just the same. The thermal insulation of the cooler would hold the heat quite nicely. You could have a whole sirloin roast in the same time I already mentioned.

6. LOL, yeah and they would still eat most of it in one meal.

 

I just bought a grinder for the kitchenaide, going to see if I can do sausage cheaper than the store. So that was my gadget budget for a little while (I still need a new stove/oven and am ignoring that too) Would like to try sous vide at some point. We often have bulk meat that can be tougher than store bought.

7. It really does work for that

You can take really tough cuts like flank steak, brisket, sirloin roast, etc, and make it as tender as fillet mignon. I've done fall off the bone ribs and even weirder things like rare pulled beef and pork. Leave it in there long enough and it quite literally disintegrates when you take it out.

8. Eating most of it in one meal...

it's got to be a guy thing. I live with one male, not a particularly young one, either.

Just as an example, we can go out to a Chinese food place and he's wolfed down most of his dinner whereas I get at least three more meals out of the same quantity of food.

Plus he's always done before I am. I'm a slow chewer, and have a smaller stomach or something. It can't hold a ton of food.

Sometimes I don't even have lunch because I'm not hungry.

I should weigh 35 lbs. Unfortunately, that is not the case.

9. There has been leftovers in this house maybe a dozen times in the last 20 years.

 

And then it is usually salad or a spoonful of vegetables.

10. I didn't know that the brain did that

Not to mention that if you are eating sugary, processed foods it can hurt your dental health as well. I recently visited my dentist in Durham NC for a teeth whitening, and he suggested that eating mass amount of sugary or processed foods can lead to teeth discoloration and decay.

11. Hi jasonnc

 

This is the second post today that I have seen from you that seems to be spamming for your dentist. Might want to read the ToS.

13. I just looked at all 18 of their posts.

 

Strange. Some seemed normal but they spammed the dentist several times. Is it a bot?
