We all think we can mind what we eat…

Rudd Sound Bites has a very interesting article about “mindless eating” that is kinda depressing:

An article published yesterday in the New York Times put it best: “When it comes to the slippery issues of snacking and portion control, no one thinks he or she is the schmo who digs deep into the snack bowl without thinking, or orders dessert just because a restaurant plays a certain kind of music.?

So it basically comes down to this: we don’t know that we are over-eating, and we would deny that we are if asked about it. The advice is very good: don’t count on being able to guess about portion size or the healthiness of snacks. Instead, rely on something that’s a little less subjective.
