In the very first episode of The Whole Health Life Podcast, we explore how our health is subtly and unknowingly influenced by the world around us. I’ll be talking to Professor Brian Wansink, who’s research has completely changed the way my family and I approach food.
Brian Wansink is a Professor of Marketing and the Director of the Food and Brand Lab at Cornell University. He and his team are dedicated to studying why we eat what we eat and how triggers around us, such as people, packages, dinnerware, product names, labels, lights, smells, and distractions, can unconsciously influence what we put into our mouths.
The great thing about the tips and tricks that Professor Wansink shares in our conversation is that they are not only grounded in rigorous research, he’s put them to the test in his own busy life so he knows they work. They’re also simple and inexpensive, and can really make a difference.
