If you have a hard time resisting sugar, fat and salt, you’re not alone – and the food industry may be partly to blame. Dr. David Kessler, former head of the FDA, recently released a new book, The End of Overeating – Taking Control of the Insatiable American Appetite, which offers an inside look at the commercial food industry.
In his book, fueled by Kessler’s concern over America’s obesity epidemic, examines how many meals, snacks and appetizers are often designed with sugar, fat and salt as their main components. This triple doozy stimulates the taste buds, which in turn impacts the brain and creates a pleasurable, almost insatiable appetite for continued consumption of these foods. Kessler describes the addictive effect as ‘conditioned hypereating’, and delves into breaking the cycle and disengaging from these unhealthy food choices.
Natural Help for Overindulgence
If you can’t wait to read Kessler’s book, you can get started on natural herbal and homeopathic remedies to provide relief from overindulgence – as a diet full of salt, sugar and fat not only leaves you uncomfortable in your jeans, but likely also feeling bloated, fatigued and unwell.
- Silybum marianus (Milk thistle), Althaea officinalis (Marshmallow) and Ulmus fulva (Slippery elm) support the liver and promote balance in the body.
- Eat healthy, balanced meals (that are as natural and unprocessed as possible) to begin fueling your body with foods containing all the essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients.
- Don’t drastically diet and skip meals – instead eat smaller portions.
- Help remove toxins by drinking eight glasses of water daily.
- Working up a good sweat can also help release toxins. Regular exercise also helps promote healthy energy levels and reduces stress.
