Avoiding Super-sized Food Commercials in the Morning

Friday, May 17, 2013

It is really hard to start the morning off on the right foot if you turn on your TV when you get up or when you start your work out. There is a real irony in working out to fast food commercials. Before you even take your first bite, the TV is telling you you are hungry, what you want to eat and how much. Ugh.

I am someone who likes to watch the news in the morning. I also roam the channels as the commercials come on to see what is happening on different channels. In doing my channel surfing I discovered that the cable channel news shows have commercials but they are different kinds of commercials. They don't seem to have food commercials. I started paying attention to the commercials and it is really different on the cable channels like CNN, HLN, MSNBC and FNC.

It is amazing the difference it makes for me to start the day out without fast food commercials. I don't start out triggered and ready to scarf  down what ever is within reach. I now work out to CNN, MSNBC, HLN and FNC. So much better for me.
