What is INFObesity?
Too much – even of a good thing – is too much. Just ask your digestive system if you eat a bowl of broccoli or go back for seconds or thirds of the kale caesar with wild salmon. Healthy foods? Yep. Too much for your body to handle at once? You betcha.
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
So if you are taking in too much nutrition and health information – your INFOload is making you unhealthy. You suffer from INFObesity.
That’s really bad news.
An 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. Net, net, INFObesity harms you because it triggers you to waste resources (time, money, effort) on quick fixes or, even worse, to give up.
How do we become INFObese?
We all know that better nutrition helps us get and stay healthy.
So we seek (Google, WebMD, Dr Oz Show, Instagram, Tufts Nutrition Newsletter, GOOP…) better nutrition and health information… and we share that information.
And then we get and we share and we seek some more…
And then we get and we share then we seek and we share, and we seek and we share and…
We become INFObese.
And INFObesity – too much information – keeps us from our real goal: better health.
