Publisher's Summary

Why You Eat What You Eat examines the sensory, psychological, neuroscientific, and physiological factors that influence our eating habits. Rachel Herz uncovers the fascinating and surprising facts that affect food consumption: bringing reusable bags to the grocery store encourages us to buy more treats; our beliefs about food affect the number of calories we burn; TV alters how much we eat; and what we see and hear changes how food tastes. Herz reveals useful techniques for managing cravings, such as resisting repeated trips to the buffet table, and how aromas can be used to curb overeating. Why You Eat What You Eat mixes the social with the scientific to uncover how psychology, neurology, and physiology shape our relationship with food and how food alters the relationships we have with ourselves and with one another.

Fascinating information

While I felt the reader was far too monotone in her delivery, the subject matter was fascinating and insightful. The author provided extensive research and covered a multitude of topics. I really enjoyed the book and gained a greater understanding between the connection of food and life. A great read!

Narrator speak to fast

What did you like best about Why You Eat What You Eat? What did you like least?

I really like this book and was interested in what the narrator was saying the problem is that multiple times I have a hard time to keep the rhythm of the narrator. She was speaking to fast for my taste. But overall is an interesting book that explain the relation of hour hapits and traditions with our food.

Would you be willing to try another one of Jo Anna Perrin’s performances?

Not sure. She speaks too fast

Did Why You Eat What You Eat inspire you to do anything?

It help me to understand more some of the things that I do
