The food problem is a flavor problem. For half a century, we’ve been making the stuff people should eat-fruits, vegetables, whole grains, unprocessed meats-incrementally less delicious. Meanwhile, we’ve been making the food people shouldn’t eat-chips, fast food, soft drinks, crackers-taste ever more exciting. The result is exactly what you’d expect.

Foods that could be acceptable if humans had strict portion control, but that are disallowed because practically none of us do. Common domino foods include: chickpeas, peanut butter, salted cashews, alcohol.
