It’s possible that in the future the NHS might  be designing an app that will help curb the growing obesity crisis here in the UK.Researchers from Cardiff University have been hot on the trail of an app that we can all use to encourage us to eat more healthily.

Experts have said that the NHS would do well to adopt a brain training app, to retrain our brains to think healthy instead of unhealthy.

Cravings for crisps, chocolates and sweets can apparently be dampened with the GoNoGo Technique. It works by teaching a person to push a button to opt for healthy food amongst a series of options. This rewires the brain and improves willpower, but the underlying mechanisms are not entirely clear.

It supports and encourages weight loss, and could be used in a handy app on smartphones one day. A large scale trial has been conducted in the UK using this technique. One in three adults in the UK are overweight or obese and the government is being encouraged to do something about it to relieve the pressure on the NHS from diet related issues.

Despite being aware of what constitutes a healthy diet, we all slip up time and time again, which is where diets fail once we return to normal eating. The key is to make healthy eating normal eating and the researchers think from tests conducted so far, this little app could be the answer. Sounds exciting and I’m looking forward to test it out if and when it appears.
