I love the piece on junkfood from the Times. However I see a major flaw in the conclusions the author draws:

“As with any addictive behavior, this one is most easily countered by educating children about the better way.”

As Ramit loves to emphasize, I doubt that throwing more and more information at them will solve the problem. An approach like the baby steps educated by BJ Fogg would have a much higher success rate.

This applies to nutrition as much as to any other field of behavior (e.g. pitching potential clients).

While I certainly don’t advocate junk food being a part of your routine, there’s a few points in the junk food article that bother me. The biggest thing to me is what exactly is the difference between cooking for myself and letting someone cook for me? “Highly processed foods” are the same foods found in your grocery store. Want a chicken salad at home? Guess what, it’s the same lettuce and the chicken comes from the same company. Any food in any fast food restaurant has it’s equivalent in the store. Buying the same items from the store and cooking… Read more »

Health food advocates suffer from the same problem that afflicts lots of other do-gooders. Their intentions are pure, but their models for how people change their behavior are laughably bad, so they use antiquated methods that are doomed for failure. If you read a dietician’s blog or a research paper, the meme is always the same: “This is a serious problem and we need to do our best to educate the people and try harder to implement X policy to get people to start doing Y.” GET REAL! That line’s been repeated about 54,871 times, and the results are so… Read more »

And on a less caustic note, that paper gets some things right, and gets some things wrong. The author’s right that price is not the primary consideration when buying fast food. Most surveys show that over-whelmingly people eat fast food because and it’s convenient, tasty enough, and is an affordable option, if not the cheapest. However, other studies have shown that, ceteris paribus, less expensive healthy food usually means more healthy food being eaten. What I don’t like though is that he makes no distinction between non-fast-food (is that a word?) that’s healthy and that which is unhealthy. Like the… Read more »
