This book is great! It brings forward all the small nuances in our eating habits and what we can do to improve them. It is written in an easy to read and fun format, which in turn, makes all the science talk more like story telling. Mindless Eating is a great read for just about any audience.

My genetics are pretty good, so I've never been a "dieting" type person. I've never really watched my weight. And until recently, I had never really attempted to diet at all. But, after already being overweight by about 15 or so pounds, and then gaining an extra 30-some pounds due to doctor-prescribed, drug-induced steroids, I finally had arrived at the point to where I needed to lose (NOTE: At my heaviest, I weighed 192 lbs. – that's borderline "obese" for a man of my height (5' 8"). By the time I started my diet I weighed 183 lbs).

Due to my health, I'm not able to do any real meaningful exercise that can contribute towards any significant calories-burned. So, after doing a little research, I discovered that a PORTION-CONTROL-ONLY type diet would probably work best. After committing to such a diet (June 2015), I found MINDLESS EATING on Amazon. Although not technically a "dieting" book, but more like a book on the science behind food marketing and WHY we eat, it was exactly what I needed. I picked it up about six weeks after my diet had started. Since that time, I have steadily lost 3.5 to 4 pounds a month. That's a slow loss, but it's a healthy loss.

As of this review (Feb. 1, 2016), I have lost 27 lbs. in the last 7 months, and I'm well on my way to hitting the perfect weight range for my age, height and physical-makeup. I credit MINDLESS EATING for giving me the mental boost and an assurance that dieting WITHOUT EXERCISE, and dieting WITHOUT GIVING UP THE FOODS YOU LOVE, is really possible – I am living proof.

If you're new to dieting, have decent weight genetics, are in a position to where you're not able to exercise, and want an easy, fun-filled, no-nonsense, common sense read, then I believe that MINDLESS EATING is for you. Thank you, Mr. Wansink, for writing this book!

I really enjoyed the studies and diet suggestions in this book. It's amazing how little changes to your lifestyle can help you lose weight instead of gradually gaining

One of the most insightful and revealing about what REALLY influences us to eat/over-eat.
