Short Synopsis
From one of the leading diet researchers, Secrets From the Eating Lab gives listeners the practical tools they need to actually lose weight and get healthy, using proven strategies for sustainable weight loss.

Full Synopsis
From her office in the University of Minnesota’s Health and Eating Lab, professor Traci Mann researches self-control and dieting. And what she has discovered is groundbreaking. Not only do diets not work; they often result in weight gain. Americans are losing the battle of the bulge because our bodies and brains are not hardwired to resist food—the very idea of it works against our biological imperative to survive.

In Secrets From the Eating Lab, Mann challenges assumptions—including those that make up the very foundation of the weight loss industry—about how diets work and why they fail. The result of more than two decades of research, it offers cutting-edge science and exciting new insights into the American obesity epidemic and our relationship with eating and food.

"Secrets from the Eating Lab offers a behind-the-scenes look into one of the most ingenious and creative labs in the country." ---Brian Wansink, PhD, author of Mindless Eating

"Traci Mann's innovative research reveals a better, more effective path to sustainable weight loss." ---Jonathan Bailor, author of The Calorie Myth
