What’s Your Food Philosophy?

This week’s FitLit on the book Mindless Eating serves as a reminder about how outside influences can affect the amount of food you eat and even how delicious you think food tastes. If I learned anything from the book, it’s that no one is immune to these forces. In one study, even people who were taught extensively about a food trap—in this instance, how you take more food from larger dishes—still fell for it a couple of weeks later.I still believe that knowledge is power, though, and that knowing some of the psychology behind eating could help avoid some slips along the food journey. How do you approach eating? —Erin

  • Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow you may exercise.
  • I try to be good, but my vice is usually oh-so-tempting.
  • Moderation is the key. Cake today, salad tomorrow!
  • My strict diet yields the best results. My body is a temple.
