Here’s a photo from the NKM class in Louisville, with the instructors Jill Pasquinelli and Carlos Gutterres along with Michael:


The food that makes us fat

I’m watching part 2 in that TV-series about food that makes us fat, this time they have the theme Supersized, and how it began (in Chicago, David Wallerstein “invention”)

One thing they are taiking about in that program was an appetite and behavior study, from 1974 in New York, made by a psychology professor (Anthony Sclafani). In his research he tried to get laboratory rats to overeat. However, on a diet of rat food, it was a slow process. He was looking for a rapid weight gain, so after trying several high fat diets, he told his graduate student to go to the supermarket and buy food that people liked to eat. It was chocolate chips cookies, candy and milk. The rats started to overeat immediately. The researchers were surprised over how rapid it was, and basically all the animals were overeating. And they started to gain weight right away, from the next day, and each day it continued to increase, and they reached a new level of body weight. Given the sugary, fatty food in abundance, the  rats ate until they became obese. And there’s a reason why –  rats share the same biological drive as humans. They seek out high calory food, in times of plenty, to be sure of survival, when the food get scarce.
Humans are biological programmed to find high energy food. If we only eat a little bit of this food, or if it’s only occasionally available, there’s nothing inherently wrong with sugar and fat. It’s just the abundance of it that makes it very difficult to resist. Some people refer to it as the toxic food environment.
Sclafanis research held within it a serious warning.The behavior he observed in rats would be repeated in humans. For the food industry it represented a lucrative opportunity. They now knew what Sclafani knew, that we human find the hardest to resist food rich in sugar and fat.
