Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think
Dr Brian Wansink
(Paperback, 2007)

Why do we eat what we eat? Because we're hungry? Apparently not. Dr Brian Wansink reveals how our environment influences our eating - plate size, lighting, music, what other people are eating - and how subconscious eating habits can encourage us to overeat.
Author Dr Brian Wansink is a Professor at Cornell University whose academic research on food psychology and behaviour change has won awards. Wansink's best-seller Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think reveals both how our environment and habits influence our eating and how we can overcome these challenges, take control of our eating behaviours, our weight and our health. An intriguing read that's highly recommended by Thinking Nutrition.
