How To Train Your Brain To Hate Junk Food
When you were born, your brain was ready to love fresh fruits and vegetables. It did not know what a Starbucks, McDonald's or Pizza Hut was. It had yet to be subjected to fried chicken wings, double bacon cheeseburgers, triple layer chocolate cake, ice cream and baked goods. Because of this, your brain was hardwired to seek out the foods that make you healthy.
Then something funny happened.
You began eating what was around you most of the time. This means processed food and fast food. Slowly, over time, your brain changed, and not for the better. You began craving those foods which you consciously knew would not lead to health and well-being. As you programmed your brain for unhealthy eating behaviors and inclinations, you can retrain your brain as well. The following 10 healthy eating steps will gradually teach your brain to love food that is good for you, and to dislike, or at least be complacent about, junk food, fast food and
highly processed food.
