  2. does it for me. “eat no evil” is their mission statement, now that’s different.

    antioxidant foods reduce stress and no stress means no comfort eating. That’s what really causes people to gain weight, just reaching for foods high in fat and carbs so we get that little dopamine hit to make us feel good. We’ve all done it and we all know the feel good factor only lasts a second or two.

    What’s amusing it that weight watchers are looking at a loyalty scheme. How stupid is that. You are not supposed to keep going back, you are supposed to lose weight and keep it off. Either people are not getting the message or weight watchers are not doing a good enough job.
