really liked it
Read in April, 2009

I breezed through this book in just a few hours. Much of its advice is common sense, but the fact it is backed up by actual research studies gives it more weight. The studies conducted are fascinating - especially those conducted on behalf of the Army on how to get stressed out troops in combat environments to eat MORE - and Wansink's voice is fun. Nothing is belabored and he advocates making a few changes to ones habits and looking for longterm results since the body responds to "diets" by storing more fat. Very practical and a pretty fun read. I particularly liked "what's your personality" based on soup preference. For me, it was dead on.
