But what if you are uncertain if your nutrition and health information load is unhealthy for you?
What is INFObesity?
Information overload is just like eating too much. It gives you a bellyache, a headache, it drains your energy, and it overwhelms your system. That’s because too much – even of a good thing – is too much. Ask your digestive system how it feels after you eat the whole pint of dairy-free ice cream or you go back for seconds or thirds of the kale caesar with wild salmon. It will tell you – or show you. Bloated, farting, sluggish, stuff going the wrong way. Your digestion isn’t shy.
When it comes to information overload, we typically miss the signals our body is sending us. Frustration, distraction, confusion can lead us to eat something because we got some info saying we need it but then it doesn’t “work” for us or we just grab anything because the info is soooo annoying.
Taking in too much information is like eating too much fat. While some information is needed, even essential, for our bodies to run better, too much overwhelms, weighs down, and interferes with our body (and mind) running better.Ashley Koff RD, on INFObesity
Are taking in too much nutrition and health information for your body?
Information overload is as bad for you as artificial sweeteners.
Both of them confuse your body and frustrate it because it thinks you are trying to give it something it can use. But It Can’t.
Your unhealthy INFOload creates decision fatigue. When fatigued, you are more likely to make bad or less good choices, to not make a choice at all, and to stress about your choices.
So your unhealthy INFOload creates more stress. More stress is not better, ever. For starters it turns the body’s focus away from digestion. INFObesity triggers you to waste resources (time, money, effort) on quick fixes or, even worse, to give up.
Is your health goal making you suffer from INFObesity?
To get healthy, are you seeking INFO or using better nutrition tools based on your personal health goal?
You can get a lot of info from search engines and information outlets like Google, WebMD, Dr Oz Show, Instagram, Tufts Nutrition Newsletter, GOOP. But none of it is personal to you and your body. I repeat NONE OF IT. That means they can not be your primary INFO source. They are not better health bullseyes for you.
