Every day, we each make around 200 decisions about eating. But studies have shown that 90% of these decisions are made without any conscious choice. Dr Brian Wansink lays bare the facts about our true eating habits to show that awareness of our patterns can allow us to lose weight effectively and without serious changes to our lives.Dr Wansink's revelations include:

·Food mistakes we all make in restaurants, supermarkets and at home
·How we are manipulated by brand, appearance and parental habits more than price and our choices
·Our emotional relationship with food and how we can overcome it to revitalise our diets.

Forget calorie counting and starving yourself and learn the truth about why we overeat in this fascinating, innovative guide. Mindless Eating has become a breakout hit from the diet and fitness field and this fantastic new package will bring it to a new audience.

    Absolutely great to understand what you eat, why you eat and how to get around smart.

    I had an annual health check at the doctors and all was fine - except I am overweight. The doctor had a chat to me and we discussed my recent decision to do somethig about losing weight, a pound a week over 18 months and some of the ways I have changed my life to do this. She was delighted but did suggest that this book might still be helpful in understanding food ideas and issues that make us eat without thinking.It hasn't really shown me anything that I didn't already know but what it does do is reinforce those ideas with some testing and examples to prove the ideas in the book and this you can't deny.I find it a bit hard to just read cover to cover but it is a good pick up/put down read that you can easily just read sections that interest you without losing the drift of the book.I am sure I will eventually read it from cover to cover but for now I am enjoying reading sections.Overall I am pleased with my purchase.Mindless Eating

    It contains a lot of techniques that actually work. Some of them seem amazingly simple such as use a smaller plate, some of them will be of things that you hadn't really thought of.I have implemented several of them in my own life and they are making a difference. There is evidence behind everything in the book as well.I did have a quick look at his website and he does seem to have lots of somewhat pointless items for sale. Hopefully he isn't turning into a "diet guru"If you stick to the book though you should learn a lot.

    A fascinating read. Full of real examples of people mindlessly over eating and with some very straightforward advice to loose wieght slowly. Apply the 20% more or less rule. 20% more fruit and veg, 20% less carbs and fat. It's pretty easy and you don't notice. It's easy to mindlessly loose weight too rather than be obsessed about it.

    I specialise in helping people lose weight, keep it off and become fitter, stronger, healthier and more mindful of how it happened ( the excess weight ) and also importantly "how to" stay fitter, stronger and healthier...This book should be compulsory reading for everyone - not just for people with a current weight issue...People don't eat calories they eat volume... This is one of the reasons diet advice can seem counter intuitive - Volumetrics delves deeper into this subject if you're interested in eating more and losing weight.How we're manipulated into buying more - and unfortunately for a lot of people eating more than we want to...Size of plates make a difference, restaurant colours make a difference, boxes vs packets vs brand names vs own label... It all makes a difference...If you want to lose weight and are prepared to invest a couple of hours reading then this is a very helpful book.If you're strapped for time then flick to chapter 10 and "Mindlessly Eating Better"."Better eating means different things for different people. It can mean eating less, eating without guilt, eating more nutritiously, or eating with greater enjoyment."And that's the key - if I attempt to teach you to eat in a certain way and that's not what you want then it becomes more difficult. Eating better is something we can all do and fits nicely into my philosophy of "getting better".So if you want to get better than my advice is to buy a highlighter pen, this book and take some time and learn from it. Don't just read it... Read it, highlight it and then pick it up now and again and dehypnotise yourself from the latest unconscious patterns and habits that we seem to pick up...
