In this illuminating and groundbreaking new book, food psychologist Brian Wansink shows why you may not realize how much you’re eating, what you’re eating–or why you’re even eating at all.
• Does food with a brand name really taste better?
• Do you hate brussels sprouts because your mother did?
• Does the size of your plate determine how hungry
• How much would you eat if your soup bowl secretly
• What does your favorite comfort food really say
• Why do you overeat so much at healthy restaurants?
Brian Wansink is a Stanford Ph.D. and the director of the Cornell University Food and Brand Lab. He’s spent a lifetime studying what we don’t notice: the hidden clues that determine how much and why people eat. Using ingenious, fun, and sometimes downright fiendishly clever experiments like the “bottomless soup bowl,” Wansink takes us on a fascinating tour of the secret dynamics behind our dietary habits. How does packaging influence how much we eat? Which movies make us eat faster? How does music or the color of the room influence how much we eat? How can we recognize the “hidden persuaders” used by restaurants and supermarkets to get us to mindlessly eat? What are the real reasons most diets are doomed to fail? And how can we use the “mindless margin” to lose–instead of gain–ten to twenty pounds in the coming year?
Mindless Eating will change the way you look at food, and it will give you the facts you need to easily make smarter, healthier, more mindful and enjoyable choices at the dinner table, in the supermarket, in restaurants, at the office–even at a vending machine–wherever you decide to satisfy your appetite.
“[Mindless Eating] does more than just chastise those of us guilty of stuffing our faces. It also examines the effectiveness of such popular diets as South Beach or Atkins, and offers useful tips to consciously eat nutritiously.”—Boston Herald
"Entertaining... Isn't so much a diet book as a how-to on better facilitating the interaction between the feed-me messages of our stomachs and the controls in our heads."—Publishers Weekly

There's nothing terribly new, although I think this guy was probably the originator of a lot of the progression towards self-help and changing your life books. His stories are quite interesting, but I think it's still not quite so clear how you would go about putting his ideas into practice.
Wansink suggests that we make small changes into our lives, a 100-200 calorie reduction from our diet so that we gradually lose weight without even knowing it. The problem with that is that often 100-200 calories will pop up to take place of the eliminated calorie threat. It's like the Lernaean Hydra--cut off one head and more temptations come in.
I would recommend this book as good general reading, but don't expect it to change your life.
As for the book instelf:
Nothing new here, just move along. Same old calories in calories out. It's basically telling you to hide your candy and junk food... Well DUH!
