Avoid sneaky food traps


April 01, 2010

I just read this article and I want to share it with on my blogs. Ever catch a whiff of fresh, hot french fries? Next thing you know, you can't stop thinking about them-with ketchup and a cola, of course. Before you realize it, you're taking the long way home just to visit the drive-through.

Why can't you resist the fries gravitational pull? One big reason: The restaurant selling them is good at its job. The food industry-manufacturers, grocery stores and restaurants-has figured out how to engineer flavors, smells and sights to create foods that are physically irresistible. The good news? Once you identify those traps you can sidestep them and learn to stick to your healthy habits.
