"The first few times people eat a new, pleasurable food, their brain’s reward systems light up" "over days, what starts to happen is the strength of the reward response to the actual consumption of the food slowly diminishes, but the reward response to the signal, the cue predicting the food, grows stronger,”
So basically the new food is exciting and gets less exciting with every subsequent consumption of it but our brain still seeks the same level of excitement as the first time. Then there's this..
"Making this worse, if we break down and have a snack—and if it happens to be something that we like—we not only become slightly more hungry in the first minutes of eating but we will grow hungry again sooner."

I kept the green/black/white color scheme I've had for along time. The original logo is in Futura Medium, so I used an italics version of Futura to put the letters on an angle. My favorite part of the logo is using the O to make the shape of a skateboard deck, so I kept that in this new logo.
This second example is more square but the ends of the scroll seem a bit too small. Maybe I should not have the notch cut out of the end... It still needs some work. I tried stretching the word Skateboarding to make it take up more of the scroll, but that ended up looking wonky. If you have any suggestions please let me know in the comments. If you're interested, here is my previous entry about the evolution of the Mostly Skateboarding logo.
