This book will literally change the way you think about your next meal. Food psychologist Brian Wansink revolutionizes our awareness of how much, what, and why we’re eating—often without realizing it. His findings will astound you. • Can the size of your plate really influence your appetite? • Why do you eat more when you dine with friends? • What “hidden persuaders” are used by restaurants and supermarkets to get us to overeat? • How does music or the color of the room influence how much—and how fast—we eat? • How can we “mindlessly” lose—instead of gain—up to twenty pounds in the coming year? Starting today, you can make more mindful, enjoyable, and healthy choices at the dinner table, in the supermarket, at the office—wherever you satisfy your appetite.

'Brian Wansink is a rare combination - an innovative scientist with a sense of humour and a very creative approach to the science of eating. I urge you to read his remarkable book.' MIKE HUCKABEE, US SENATOR 'Brain Wansink is the Sherlock Holmes of food . . . We would each do well to be mindful of what he recommends.' KELLY D. BROWNELL phD, YALE UNIVERSITY Carefully conducted studies over many years show the same thing: that our eating habits are almost entirely unconscious, and can be influenced by hundreds of outside factors. In fact, every one of us makes over 200 decisions about eating every day, and of those 90 per cent are made without any conscious decision. By gaining knowledge of your eating habits, Dr Wansink demonstrates that it is entirely possible to lose a stone in weight. No crash diets, no frustrating calorie counting, and no starving yourself: just a simple awareness of what you eat. While detailing his simple and fascinating studies, Dr Wansink explains: * *how people don't eat calories, they eat volume *how we are manipulated by brand, appearance and parental habits more thatn price and our choices *what your favourite comfort food says about you. With an insightful, incredible exploration into our habits, and what makes us eat the way we eat, Dr Wansink demonstrates that it's not what we eat - it's how we eat it.

In this paradigm-shattering book, leading behavioural economist and food psychologist Brian Wansink - dubbed the 'Sherlock Holmes of food' and the 'wizard of why' - offers a radical new philosophy for weight loss. The answer isn't to tell people what to do: it's to set up their living environments so that they will naturally lose weight. Using cutting-edge, never-before-seen research from his acclaimed Food and Brand Lab at Cornell University, Wansink reveals how innovative and inexpensive design changes - from home kitchens to restaurants, from grocery stores to schools and workplaces - can make it mindlessly easy for people to eat healthier and make it more profitable for the companies who sell the food.

In Slim by Design, Wansink argues that the easiest, quickest and most natural way to reverse weight gain is to work with human nature, not against it. He demonstrates how schools can nudge kids to take an apple instead of a cookie, how restaurants can increase profits by selling half-size portions, how supermarkets can double the amount of fruits and vegetables they sell, and how anyone can cut plate refills at home by more than a third. Interweaving drawings, charts, floor plans and scorecards with new scientific studies and compelling insights that will make you view your surroundings in an entirely fresh way, this entertaining, eye-opening book offers practical solutions for changing your everyday environment to make you, your family and even your community slim by design.

Although encouraging people to eat more nutritiously can promote better health, most efforts by companies, health professionals, and even parents are disappointingly ineffective. Brian Wansink’s Marketing Nutrition focuses on why people eat the foods they do, and what can be done to improve their nutrition. Wansink argues that the true challenge in marketing nutrition lies in leveraging new tools of consumer psychology (which he specifically demonstrates) and by applying lessons from other products’ failures and successes. The key problem with marketing nutrition remains, after all, marketing.

Do I really need another biscuit/ sweet/ cake/ crisp? Ask yourself the question next time you dive for the biscuit tin. Many of us fall easily into patterns of "mindless" eating. We pick at food while working at our computers, we reach for the quickest - and usually the unhealthiest - snacks for a quick energy boost, we don't take proper lunch breaks, we are constantly distracted while we eat. We have lost a lot of the enjoyment of eating and as a result we are guilty of just "shoveling" food into our bodies. Mindful eating applies the principles of mindfulness to our everyday eating habits. Becoming mindful of what we are eating allows us to become more aware of the whole experience of eating, and helps us to appreciate and savour our food. By eating mindfully we can also break negative habits such as overeating. It also helps us to avoid the pitfalls of yo-yo dieting, and so enables us to lose weight and keep it off for good. This book shows how we can use mindfulness to aid weight loss by really listening to our body. Filled with practical exercises and delicious recipes, Mindful Eating will set you on the path to a new and healthier way of eating.

What would it be like to really savor your food? Instead of grabbing a quick snack on your way out the door or eating just to calm down at the end of a stressful day, isn’t it about time you let yourself truly appreciate a satisfying, nourishing meal? In our modern society, weight concerns, obesity rates, and obsession with appearance have changed the way we look at food—and not necessarily for the better. If you have ever snacked when you weren’t hungry, have used guilt as a guide for your eating habits, or have cut calories even when you felt hungry, you have experienced “mindless” eating firsthand. This mindless approach to food is dangerous, and can have serious health and emotional consequences. But if you’ve been mindlessly eating all your life, it can be difficult to make a change. When it comes down to it, you must take a whole new approach to eating—but where do you begin? Practicing mindful eating habits may be just the thing to make that important change. In fact, it might just be the answer you’ve been searching for all these years. The breakthrough approaches in Eating Mindfully, by Susan Albers, use mindfulness-based psychological practices to take charge of cravings so they can eat when they are hungry and stop when they feel full. Ten years after the release of the first edition, this book continues to help thousands of readers change the way they approach mealtime. So what’s changed? For starters, there is a new section that focuses on the “occasional mindless eater.” This second edition emphasizes that mindful eating isn’t only for those on a diet or for those who have severely problematic eating habits—it’s for everyone. In addition, this new edition features over 50 new tips for eating mindfully. Inside, you will learn how to be more aware of what you eat, get to know your fullness and hunger cues, and how to savor and appreciate every bite. You will also learn how mindlessness corrupts the way you eat, and how it can manifest in a number of different eating problems. No matter where you are in your journey toward mindful eating, this book will be an invaluable resource, and you will gain insight into how mindfulness can provide you with the skills needed to control the way you eat—leading to a healthier, happier life.

Tracing culinary customs from the Stone Age to the stovetop range, from the raw to the nuked, this book elucidates the factors and myths shaping Americans' eating habits. The diversity of food habits and rituals is considered from a psychological perspective. Explored are questions such as Why does the working class prefer sweet drinks over bitter? Why do the affluent tend to roast their potatoes? and What is so comforting about macaroni and cheese anyway? The many contradictions of Americans' relationships with food are identified: food is both a primal source of sensual pleasure and a major cultural anxiety; Americans adore celebrity chefs, but no one cooks at home anymore; the gourmet health food industry is soaring, yet a longtime love affair with fast food endures. The future of food is also covered, including speculation about whether traditional meals will one day evolve into the mere popping of a nutrition capsule.
