Why you eat less healthily than you think you do

There’s a strange self-delusion going on around the food we eat. We tend to judge food as more healthy than it actually is – but only if we eat it. Eating a pizza? That’s not so bad. Someone else eating a pizza? Now that’s unhealthy…
It’s a strange piece of mental mathematics, as illustrated by this excellent info graphic from Massive Health – but 72% of foods are rated healthier by the eater, than by everyone else. And our health is at the heart of this (pardon the pun). If we can’t judge the nature of the food we eat, then we can’t be expected to eat ourselves healthier. A genuine understanding of the nature of our diets would be a huge help.
So long as we get to keep bacon.
