Why We Learn

To navigate the buffet

If starving, we’ll eat anything.

If presented with an endless buffet, we’ll eat what we already like – and usually too much of it.

Ironically, when it comes to advice about healthy eating, it works same way. Too much information is just as dangerous as none. We don’t know how to choose.

To navigate the buffet:

  • Search for a person who’s been through the line before, and ask them for recommendations
  • Take only small portions

Better than a buffet is a restaurant, with a chef that you know and trust.

Better than a restaurant is experimenting in your own kitchen.
