Author, Dr. Brian Wansick, a food psychologist at Cornell University has conducted several experiments and studies on what triggers overeating. The book explains the reasons we tend to overeat and gives tips on how to overcome those triggers. For example, recognizing the difference between no longer feeling hungry and feeling full. Wansink also suggests serving 20 percent less food at mealtimes. How – by serving it on smaller plates and hiding the difference. He also suggests that when eating out, in addition to the main meal; choose only two items from appetizer, drink and dessert instead of all three. He also gives tips on how to cut 100-200 calories a day without making an impact on your psyche or hunger.
The book is an eye opener and gives us insight on our eating patterns with hardcore research as backup.
