Rapid Brain Vulnerability Quiz

Is your brain irresistibly attracted to certain foods?

Neuroscience has proven that the brain has the ability to block weight loss. If you’ve always had weight issues, or if you constantly think about food (even if you’re thin), you may have a brain that is vulnerable to being hijacked by certain foods.

Let’s ask your brain

Current science has established that it takes — on average! — 66 consecutive days [that’s 10 weeks or 2.5 months] to form a habit. Once a habit is established, the brain never forgets it. Although the habit may become dormant, it is never completely erased.

So, with this in mind, I ask you to think of a period of at least 66 days when your eating was at its worst, when you felt the most out of control, when you thought the most about food.

Take a moment, close your eyes and go back to that period in your life. Are you there?

Now, from this space, answer the following questions as if you were still in that period.

Please select the answer that BEST represents your experience.

NOTE: The expression «those foods» refers to any type of food you have a hard time controlling your intake of, such as sweets, pastries, ice cream, pasta, pizza, bread, fries, burgers, bacon, soda… It could even be something considered healthy like nuts/seeds and their butters, rice cakes, dried fruit….
