Overweight America. We have access to more nutrition facts and diet plans now than ever before. Consumers have never known more about nutrition and yet have never been more overweight. For most Americans maintaining a balanced diet is more difficult than doing their taxes. What are we doing wrong?
Learn to eat better. Jack Bobo reveals how the psychology of food has been invisibly controlling us, in the grocery aisles, at restaurants, in front of the refrigerator, and in every other place we make crucial food choices. Now behavioral science is changing the way we think about food and showing us how to develop healthy meal plans and deliver more balanced diets.
Apply behavioral science to your diet plan. A balanced diet creates healthy routines and a better quality of life. You can move beyond fad diets, pop science, and calls for ever greater willpower. Explore the deeper causes of hidden influences and mental shortcuts our minds use to process information and how they often prevent us from healthy eating habits.
- Understand the psychology behind hidden influences
