NOW Profiles will help you identify the foods that will make it easier to achieve and maintain your optimum weight.
Recent research shows a high correlation between very palatable foods and overeating. "Palatability", as used by food scientists, doesn't refer to how good a certain food tastes. It actually refers to a food's ability to make us want more of it. It's the characteristic of a food that drives us to eat it compulsively, and of course, eating compulsively leads to overeating and excess weight.
Today's food industry creates highly palatable food by loading and layering it with sugar, fat and salt. Based on the nutrition label information you give it, the NOW Profiles Online Tool creates a "palatability profile" for each food, consisting of color-coded points showing the concentration of sugar, fat and salt in the food, as well as a combined score.
By eating foods with lower NOW Profile scores you will find it easier to control your eating and lose or maintain your weight. You'll feel less deprived eating fewer calories because foods with lower palatability scores are higher in water, fiber, protein and other nutrients.
Eating foods with low scores will result in taking in fewer calories because they fill you up faster and help you feel full for a longer time after eating.
You will find it especially helpful to eat foods with a low sugar score (except for unprocessed fruits and vegetables – their fiber and water make them great for you) because the sugar in processed food limits your body's ability to recognize that you have eaten enough. (In addition, a number of studies have shown sugar to be a major cause of metabolic syndrome, which includes obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease).
