The Spokane (WA) Spokesman-Review features a Food article about the psychology of overeating. The culprits? Variety and choice. “Food should be boring,” writes Laura Crooks, “especially if you’re trying to lose weight.” This puritanical attitude is the natural outgrowth of two things: (1) a recent American Psychological Association study which claimed that the sheer variety of foods available to consumers may be pushing them to overeat; and (2) 30 years of CSPI-induced guilt trips about the supposed evils of anything more flavorful than oat bran.
