1 The wrong half of the carrot (continued)
The answer closest to the correct thinking is:
The most important think to consider when you decide what to eat is what your body needs for the day ahead of you.
Your body is like a car (allbeit like a car that works all the time).
Cars run on fuel; your body, too, runs on fuel: the fuel it fabricates itself from the foods you eat.
How much fuel your body should get depends on how long and how hard it will have work. If you will exercise for two hours, or lift heavy weights, or run 5 miles today, you'll need more foods to help your body accomplish all that hard work than if you'll sit at your desk for 8 hours and then just drive home.
We all think we know that: yet that's not how we usually think when we decide what to eat. In fact, less than 1% of the participants in this course have chosen the right button. Surprisingly many chose "It's what I had" - a sure sign that habits are hard to break :-). And as we expected (because we tricked you on purpose) many chose the green buttons, in the hope that they were the right answers (they weren't). Which goes to show that very few of us have the right thinking when choosing what to eat.
So the simple question is this: DO YOU KNOW EXACTLY HOW MUCH FOOD YOU SHOULD EAT TODAY? >>>
