Welcome to my Sound Bites podcast where we delve into the science, psychology and strategies behind good food and nutrition.
Today my guest is Brian Wansink, PhD author of Slim by Design and Mindless Eating and Director of the Cornell University Food & Brand Lab.
Did you know we make over 200 food decisions every day? We are ALL mindless eaters. Maybe you're familiar with Dr. Wansink's food lab experiments like the endless soup bowl, or the movie theatre popcorn, or the many other fun research studies he's done to examine why and how we all make food decisions.
Willpower doesn't work! It's easier to change your environment than to change your mind!
On this episode we discuss:
1. The way our homes, schools, restaurants, workplaces, and grocery stores are set up predictably lead us to pick up cookies rather than apples. But just as they’ve evolved to make us overeat, we can easily redesign them to make us slim.
2.    To slim down via willpower is hard. Slim by Design is easy! Use the resources available and make this a movement!
3.    For every place we purchase or prepare food – homes and schools, restaurants and grocery stores – there are slim by design solutions.
