“This book is a revelation!” writes the Library Journal Review. In Slim by Design, leading behavioral economist, food psychologist, and bestselling author Brian Wansink introduces groundbreaking solutions for designing our most common spaces – our homes, our favorite restaurants, our favorite grocery store, our work site, and our children’s schools, among others – in order to make positive changes in how we approach and manage our diets. Anyone familiar with Dr. Wansink’s Mindless Eating knows this is not a typical diet book. Dr. Wansink shares his scientific approach to tweaking our environment to make us Slim by Design rather than fat by design. The pioneer of the Small Plate Movement, Brian Wansink presents compelling research conducted by the famed Cornell University Food and Brand Lab by way of cartoons, drawings, charts, graphs, floor plans, and more. Slim by Design offers innovative ways to make healthy eating mindlessly easy and to change the world along the way. Read the Official Press Release
