Presentation Review: Everyday Forces Working against Your Weight Loss Plan

Weight loss can be difficult, and can often cause us to feel down on ourselves when we are not seeing the results we expect. In Trevor Roark's presentation 'Everyday Forces Working against Your Weight Loss Plan' he discussed the many mixed messages consumers receive from the media when it comes to the food we choose to fill our bodies with. Companies claim that as consumers we are 100% in control of our bodies and our weight loss, but when we receive mixed messages from so many different companies, that statement seems far from the truth. This misinformation may also be passed down from generation to generation which may lead to unhealthy decisions in the future.

Mr. Roark stressed that when large corporations are developing a food product, they do not have our nutritional values in mind. This holds true in restaurants as well as grocery stores. In big businesses, profits come first, and the food additives they use are not what is advertised.

Mr. Roark left us with some helpful take-home tips to fight these outside sources. These include:

  • Watch less TV
  • Eat together at the table
  • Remind yourself that many companies don’t have your nutritional values in mind; just their own profit
  • Start your own garden
  • Buy food around the perimeter of the store. (The closer you get to the middle of the grocery store the more processed the foods tend to be)
  • Don’t be afraid to stick up for yourself and your food choices
