Follow Friday: Mindless Eating

As a dietitian with a degree in psychology I find the work of Brian Wansink at Cornell University endlessly fascinating. His website is: Mindless Eating and he’s also authored a book by the same name. His work helps to show us why we eat what we eat and why we eat as much of it as we do. He’s a big proponent of the effect of our food environment on our food consumption, as am I, and as you should be. If you’re interested in learning how to stop yourself from dipping into the candy bowl at work or all the little tricks that food companies and restaurants use to make us buy and eat more of their foods then you should definitely check out his work.
