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.

    " I don't think this is new info, but a good tool to help us remember what we should do as we eat. "

    " While it makes sense that you will eat more chips eating them out of the bag, rather than a bowl, the size of the difference is kind of amazing. Even knowing precisely what kind of portion distortions are going on, it's hard to dodge them all. Wansink's discussion of his experiments are the kind of stuff I somehow manage to bring up in conversation more than I'd like to admit. The fact that I still have friends may be a testament to this book. "

    " This was a fun book to read. I learned a lot about how we can be "tricked" into eating more, less, etc. The author gives 9 reengineering strategies that we can use to help us be more mindful of our eating. I'm definitely more aware now of some of the "tricks" and how I can avoid them. "

    " I enjoyed everything about this common-sense approach to weight loss (or gain, if needed). Using real-life research, the author shows how you can deliberately set up your lifestyle to help you mindlessly eat LESS instead of more. The short sections & the author's engaging style made it a quick & enjoyable read. "
