As a person who tends to eat slightly more than I need, I learned a lot of practical suggestions.
There are lots of interesting experiments on eating that Dr. Wansink conducted with his lab that will open your eyes to why you eat the way you do and how you can get into the habit to mindlessly lose weight.
This book advocates losing weight slowly and without making you feel deprived by applying the mindless margin principle - you won't notice if you eat 100-200 calories less per day, but that same amount translates into weighing 10 pounds less after a year.
I highly recommend this book!
I couldn't believe some of the results that came out. One example was people eating popcorn at the movies. Even when the popcorn was 5 days old and stale, people still ate it (and some ate more of the stale popcorn just because it was in a larger bucket). It not only opened my eyes to restaurant portions but made me re-think the amount of food I ate at home (or my desk) and how to control it.
This is NOT a diet book on how to make you stop eating as much. In fact, there's rarely any mention of "do this to stop eating as much" advice. This book is simply a great read enlightening us to how much we really eat when we don't realize it. While it didn't come out and tell me not to do certain things, I chose to do them on my own after hearing the studies and findings. Read this book!
