how would you define of palatability?
-food's capacity to stimulate the appetite & prompt us to eat more
SUGAR FAT SALT SUGAR FAT SALT SUGAR FAT SALT SUGAR FAT SALT
taste is INVOLVED, but it is the motivation to pursue the taste
CRAVINGS - appetite arousal
think about it....what do you crave?
the smell of baking cookies
the texture of cold stone creamery
sweet potato fries
just ketchup at times!!!!
chocolate/yogurt covered pretzels
usually its the anticipation of the taste
all of these things have multiple addictive ingredients
"the distinctive taste does not stem from the type of potatoes that McDonald's buys.....the taste of the fast food fry is determined by the cooking oil......for decades McDonald's cooked its fries in a mixture of about 7% cottonseed oil & 93% beef tallow."
you know that a shit load of salt is doused all over them once the are finished swimming in animal fat
THIS IS HOW THEY GET 'EM hooked
Whopper with Cheese
Classic Triple with everything
though i know that MANY of us stay away from these foods
i am only using them as an extreme example of not knowing what you are eating
personally i have salt on ANYTHING and my head swells up like a blowfish
for most normal people it isnt as noticeable
over time the weight just starts piling on
and all the while your insides are getting clogged by plaque
giving us high blood pressure & cholesterol
i actually feel that you have it worse
because you dont have to stare your problem in the face everyday
you are MORE likely to develop heart disease & be surprised by it!
listen to your body
recognize that you are responding to
the pursuit of a taste
if that is what you really want in the moment
go for it...in moderation, on occasion
work on understanding the difference in yourself
of hunger vs desire
& arousal vs necessity
