Our best and worst eating habits start in a grocery store, says consumer behavior expert Brian Wansink. But his tiny tweaks can change the way you eat (and have nothing to do with buying low-fat over regular).

Brian Wansink, PhD, is the Cornell University professor who coined the term “mindless eating” and did countless studies to prove that small shifts make a huge difference (he’s the one who told us we eat 96 percent more when we’re with a group of friends and we serve ourselves 22 percent more when the color of our food matches our plate)…

Food Addiction vs. Eating Addiction: Why A Single Word Makes All The Difference + MORE

Hello,

Welcome back to our next roundup of Total Solution Weight Loss topics and tips on getting excess weight off and keeping it off,  in the most healthiest way possible.  This update is an informative mix of exercise and diet for flexibility in incorporating what fits best into your schedule.

Food Addiction vs. Eating Addiction: Why A Single Word Makes All The Difference

– huffingtonpost.com/feeds/verticals/health-fitness/index.xml

After a tough or emotional day, I will sometimes go home and eat ______ until I’m sick.

How people answer this question is at the crux of an emerging debate about obesity and food addiction. Is food addiction real, and should food industries be held accountable for engineering hyper-palatable sugar-salt-fat bombs that override feelings of fullness? Or is it more accurate to describe overeating as an eating addiction — a disordered relationship to all foods that can and should be brought to heel by the individual?

“Sitting in the room with clients, you never hear people say, ‘Oh my god, I came home after a hard day and I was just craving broccoli and cauliflower so bad that I had a massive binge on these vegetables,’” said Ashley Gearhardt, Ph…
