i started reading
alas, the writer spoke of limiting what you eat, or tapping in to the guilt you feel afterward, or leaving the chicken bones on your plate during a meal to visually gauge the amount of food ingested.
i wanted to hear about behavioral changes, or more about this juicy nugget that kicked off the piece:
If you eat right, you’ll have more energy. That makes you more likely to succeed at work and earn more money. Then, you’ll be able to afford better food, stay healthy and spend less on medical costs. And the virtuous circle continues.That’s the way it’s supposed to work. The reality — reflected in bulging waistlines and debt loads — is that Americans generally haven’t shown much discipline at McDonald’s, the mall or in the mortgage market.
i finished the article, disappointed. there were no stats on eating better, or eating well cheaply, or eating locally to stimulate the economy. instead, we're to record what we eat, like a budget. and try to do better next time.
