Description - How We Eat with Our Eyes and Think with Our Stomachs by
From optical illusions, to genes, to the environment - the surprising factors that drive what, when, and how we eat
We make over 200 decisions - sometimes subconscious, often irrational - about food every day. Some of them we know we're making- what to eat, how to eat it, and many more. What we don't know is how each of those decisions is manipulated by our environment, the food industry, and our own irrational appetites.
Journalist Melanie M hl and psychologist Diana von Kopp investigate more than 40 compelling, distinct questions and issues- Why do we like the foods we like? Is it because of our environment? Family? Taste buds? (All three?) Is raw food healthier than cooked food? (No!) Why do people overeat? Keep reading, and find out!
This book enables us to become more intelligent about food and how we eat, and offers insights that we'll surely remember the next time we buy groceries, sit down at a restaurant, or go into the pantry looking for a snack.
