Review I basically agree with what Wanting has to say about why people sometimes overeat unknowingly. This book itself is called Mindless Eating simply because sometimes we are unaware of what actually prompt us to eat what we eat and at what quantities. What is good about this book is that it does not sell unrealistic approach on how to lose weight, but instead shows us that it is the power of human brain which ultimately leads us to eat more or less. All those crabs, fat grams, and calories come behind.
There are a lot of new discoveries- which I honestly never though about- that this book brings to surface. Having an open candy dish in your home or office makes it more likely that you will snack on whatever you put in there even when you are not hungry is one. Another is that foods with descriptive names will seem to taste better than those with less attractive labels although they are made of the same ingredients. Moreover, Wanting approach to the readers is not preachy at all, but full of eye-opening information which Is really interesting in many ways.
The book offers plenty of interesting studies, and one of my personal favorite is the study of strawberry yogurt, in which Wanting and his team invite 32 people to rate the taste of some new strawberry yogurts. The only exception Is that they have to eat with the lights turned off; and that they have no clue that the researchers actually gave them chocolate yogurt instead of strawberry. Strangely, the mere suggestions that they were eating strawberry yogurt led 19 out of 32 people to rate It as having good treachery taste.
This simply concludes that we taste what we think we will taste; so if we can’t see the food and someone tells us we’re going to taste strawberry, strawberry It will be. Another thing I Like about this book Is that each chapter has Its own “reengineering strategy’ section; a part where Wantons gives us tips to make a change to our surrounding that can tempt us to overeat. For example, we should put those temptresses down to a remote corner or somewhere that will minimize our nonviolence and thus make us think twice before we even want to eat It.
After reading his book, I become aware of my eating habits, and so from now on I will try to eat mindfully rather than mindlessly. Instead of making people deprived of the food they love and feel that losing weight Is such a painful process, this book shows us how to get rid of those cues that cause us to overeat and how to reengineering our kitchen and our habits. Mindless Eating By demise of eye-opening information which is really interesting in many ways. The book offers some new strawberry yogurts.
