What causes obesity? Too much sugar? Too much fat? Hormones in our milk and meat? Too much sedentary time? Too many meals away from home? The wrong mix of macronutrients?
Caloric Overconsumption Even if it doesn’t tell the whole story, it gives us a starting spot.
Food choice is not the same as intake volume decisions. Health Halos – like a get out of jail free cards for eating. When a person eats “healthy”, on average, they eat 34% more calories.
Who you eat with Plate size – people consume (on average) 92% of what is on their plate – smaller plates lead to smaller consumption Serving utensil size– nutrition experts served themselves 31% more when using a larger serving spoon Serving dish size – Those serving out of a gallon bowl served 53% more and ate 59% more than those serving out of 2 half gallon bowls.
