“Home prepared meals are much less standardized, and not so fined tuned to hit the salty/sweet/fatty buttons over and over.Â Also, much of the shopping is done for them when you aren’t actually hungry, and so you’re likely to pick healthier foods with lower caloric density–committing your future self to behave more virtuously than it probaby would decide to on the spur of the moment.Â A leaner wallet may mean a leaner you.”
Seems like there is at least something to smile at in all this. Since committing to better nutrition and better planning, I’ve dropped about 8-10 lbs. We comparison shop and are more committed to knowing what we put in our bodies. However, when people consume less, the consumer-driven nature of our economy suffers even more. You just can’t win.
