Should I stop eating junk food completely?
Eating your favorite treats in moderation can help you stick to your diet (especially long term), enjoy holidays and other special events, and avoid unhealthy preoccupations with food. Besides, completely abstaining from junk food is not sustainable, enjoyable, or worthwhile for your health.
Why is it hard to stop eating junk food?
This is most likely down to a psychological phenomenon called ‘sensory-specific satiety’. As we consume more of a particular flavour, our taste buds slowly get more and more tired of it, and we stop eating that food. When presented with a new flavour, we get more reward from it, and so we continue eating.
