What would happen if you ate to maximize how good you feel in one hour, rather than right now?

Most people make food decisions based on what feels good this very moment:

I’m craving a hamburger Let’s order another pizza That chocolate cake looks too good to resist But then you eat the pizza AND the cake... and feel sort of sluggish. And eventually your weight goes up. And then you start taking meds you wouldn’t even need, if you ate based on what maximizes your well being one hour from now. There’s a growing body of evidence that suggests the best way to feel great is to eat food that doesn’t need a label or ingredient list: fruits, vegetables, nuts and single sources of protein (i.e. steak or fish). Such food can be delicious and satisfying, but it’s seldom advertised or packaged the ways that processed foods are. One simple rule of thumb might be that the larger a food’s #advertising budget, the worse it is for you. I’d like to suggest that #eating in this manner will increase your #health in a manner you can easily measure. For example, it’s wise to monitor your level of C-reactive protein (CRP), which increases when there's #inflammation in your body (a bad thing).
