When you’re hungry, or broke, or just in a hurry.
Hungry? I try to eat on a regular schedule, before I get too hungry, so that I make healthy choices.
Broke? It is true that the cheapest calories are cheap in the short term, but deadly in the long term
Hurry? It requires planning (and some time – sorry) if one wants to eat in ways that promote weight loss. Processed food is designed to make us want more, overeat, and become obese.
