Brian Wansink, PhD, is the Cornell University professor who coined the term "mindless eating
" and did countless studies to prove that small shifts make a huge difference (he's the one who told us we eat 96 percent more when we're with a group of friends
and we serve ourselves 22 percent more when the color of our food matches our plate
). Wansink's hotly anticipated new book, Slim By Design
, is packed with research that shows how we can change the way we interact with our environments to make eating healthy a no-brainer. First stop: The grocery store.
