Most of us don't overeat because we're hungry.  We overeat because of family and friends, packages and plates, names and numbers, labels and lights, colors and candles, shapes and smells, distractions and distances, cupboards and containers. Based on 20 years of research, Professor Wansink shows how we mindlessly eat and how to turn it around.  Interestingly, the solution to mindless eating is not "mindful eating".  Instead it is setting up your home, table, and office so you mindlessly eat less rather than mindlessly overeat.  (See more at and

Upon completion, participants will be able to do the following:

1.  Analyze food cues that are causing patients to overeat.

2.  Identify two simple solutions for the "mindless eater".

3.  List three specific examples on how to convince a client to try making an appropriate small change in his/her diet.

Brian Wansink (Ph.D. Stanford 1990) is the John Dyson Endowed Chair in the Applied Economics and Management Department at Cornell University, where he directs the Cornell Food and Brand Lab.  He is the lead author of over 100 academic articles and books on eating behavior, including the best-selling "Mindless Eating:  Why We Eat More Than We Think" (2006) along with "Marketing Nutrition" (2005), "Asking Questions" (2004), and "Consumer Panels" (2002).  From 2007-2009 Wansink was granted a leave of absence from Cornell to accept a Presidential appointment as Executive Director of the USDA's Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion, the Federal Agency in charge of developing 2010 Dietary Guidelines and promoting the Food Guide Pyramid ( While there, web hits to Dietary Guidelines increased 44% to 5.4 million/day and he was named ABC World News Person of the Week.  Wansink's award-winning academic research on changing eating behaviors has been published in the world's top marketing, medical, nutrition, and obesity journals.  His research has contributed to the introduction of smaller "100 calorie" packages (to prevent overeating), the use of taller glasses in some bars (to prevent the over pouring of alcohol), and the use of elaborate names and mouth-watering descriptions on some chain restaurant menus (to improve enjoyment of the food).  His results have been presented, translated, reported and featured in television documentaries on every continent but Antarctica.  An Iowa native, he lives with his wife and three daughters in Ithaca, NY, where he's a mediocre saxophone player in a rock 'n' roll band and where he regularly enjoys both French food and french fries.
