A New Year’s Resolution Not to Diet?

This year, 2024, instead of jumping on the diet craze or taking a new weight loss medication, why not take a deeper dive into why you gained weight? George Santayana wrote in the early 19th Century, “Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.” So, how many times have you tried to lose weight?

Most people do not look at processed foods as contributing to changes in how our body functions. (Always hungry? Fatty tissue in embarrassing places? Hormonal changes?) And does food addiction play a role? In “Ultra Processed People”, Chris Van Tulleken outlines the criteria that make a substance addictive. These are:

  • Cravings for the substance
  • Repeated Unsuccessful attempts to cut down
  • Continued use despite negative consequences
  • Sense of relief or pleasure after intake of the substance
