Mindless Eating is another book on human dieting, but with a specific goal of getting readers to take action on their habits of just eating without thinking.
Written by Brian Wansink, the book is all about those times you just eat compulsively because food is there.
I mean, have you ever found yourself finishing your kids’ leftovers, or making sure you scoop up every last piece of soggy cereal at the bottom of your bowl?
Do you snack straight from the box, or even eat your lunch in front of the computer or TV just because it’s ‘there’?
The reality is that we all mindless eat from time to time, but the effects it may have on our bodies is quite significant and really should be taken seriously.
Mindless Eating really isn’t a diet book as such, and it does not have a set routine to stick by , or certain food to eat and times to eat them.
The book is all about combating negative parts of your diet and ways to improve your eating habits.
There’s no specific diet plan to follow or healthy recipes to prepare. Instead, it uncovers some of the hidden persuaders that cause us to overeat, and offers simple strategies to help us stop.
Most people are in denial about mindless eating and this book is aimed at making sure everyone knows when they are mindless eating.
Here’s an excerpt from the book:
“We make around 200 food-related decisions each day, most of which are subconscious, and few of which are related to how hungry we are. Like it or not, we’re gullible and suggestible when it comes to food. Think you’re immune? If you’ve ever found yourself finishing your kids’ leftovers, or if you regularly scoop up every last piece of soggy cereal at the bottom of your bowl, snacked straight from the box, or eaten lunch in front of the computer or TV, you’re guilty of mindless eating. But you’d never eat a bucket of stale popcorn, would you? Wansink begs to differ.”
Happy reading and dieting!!
