In our last post, we began building the foundation for healthy eating by defining nutritional density, and we used it as a guide for structuring meals. Today, we’ll explain hyperpalatability and how to avoid overeating.
The “palatability” of food is a measure of the neurological reward associated with eating it. Highly “palatable” foods tend to:
- Make you crave more of that food (and other foods), increasing the total amount you eat
- Suppress hunger signals, making you hungrier overall
- Be denser in calories with a mixture of fat, salt, and/or sugar
- Be very easy to consume
- Have strong textural & flavor properties such as being crunchy or salty
Traveling with limited food options adds further stress. We won’t dive too deep into the minutia, but over the next several blog posts, we’ll arm you with the knowledge and guidance to make healthy nutrition choices at home and on the road. This post defines the first of two words to help lay the foundation: nutritional density.Read More
