Because they are literally addicting! Foods with sugar, salts and certain fats (or a combination thereof) light up the same parts of your brain as heroin and cocaine - the parts responsible for pleasure and addiction. You are literally addicted to the foods you eat. Restaurants, fast food establishments and junk food companies have got this down to a science. They know how foods trigger brain functions and create their foods to be highly addictive and pleasurable to eat so you want to come back for more. Studies have also shown that there is a connection between color and brain triggers for cravings. I don’t know what country you are in, but most fast foods places have red and yellow logos. McDonalds, In N Out, Pick-up Sticks, Del Taco, Burger King, Jack in the Box, etc. Most coffee places are green and white: Starbucks, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, Peet’s Coffee and Tea, etc. It’s odd the way your brain reacts to sights, colors, smells and tastes, and companies know this.
Ok so I don’t know if I’ve been hacked or if everyone else has but the last four asks I’ve been sent are all weird links for different weightloss pills and strategies. But the link itself looks sketch. Are these real oooooor?
Woman Crush Wednesday. It’s when someone posts a picture of a woman they have feelings for on Wednesday and states that he likes/loves/has a crush on her via some social media site. There’s also MCM when someone does the same if they like/love/has a crush on a man…. On a Monday haha.
Wow. Kinda makes you think.
Awe thanks love :) That means a lot to me! <3
You should eat at least your BMR (calculated HERE) rest day or not. Your BMR is how many calories it takes for your body to think, breath, move, digest, create new cells, produce hormones, etc. Eating your BMR keeps your body running smoothly. If you don’t, yes you may lose some weight, but your body will take whatever measures it needs to in order to conserve energy aka calories. That includes decreasing metabolism, making you lethargic, etc. So eat at least that. On active days, burn 500-1000 more than you eat. For example, say my BMR is 1450. I burned 700 working out today, which means I burned a total of 2150. So I would eat 1650, but I wouldn’t go as low as 1150 because that would be under my BMR.
Hope this helps! :)
