Warning: Bad food brainwashing

September 27, 2012

Maintaining a healthy weight range can be a constant struggle for some of us, and it’s made all the more difficult by the images we see around us.

Christy Matta is author of the book “The Stress Response”, and in a piece for PsychCentral says we are surrounded by unhealthy messages about food:

We may not pay close attention to the billboards with coffee drinks heaped with whipped cream being consumed by happy and thin models, or commercials in which physically fit sports fans watch a game with a bucket of fried chicken, but they do have an impact on how much we believe we can and need to eat.

Being mindful of our environment is one of the keys to good mental health in general, and paying particular attention to that environment in terms of the messages we’re receiving about food can give us pause for thought in changing the way we think about how we eat.

Effective weight management requires behaviour change that is realistic and achievable, while maintaining your self-esteem.
