EXCLUSIVE WEBINAR PRESENTATION - Food Psychology: Why We Eat More Than We Think - Wednesday, June 21, 2017, at 2 PM EDT - Presented by Jim Painter, PhD, RD
Most people are not aware of the volume of food they consume and this lack of awareness may lead to over-consumption. Dr. Painter will illustrate with examples how portion sizes have increased over the past two decades and the ways to control food portions: by changing the dining environment with smaller eating implements, become more aware of the foods that we eat using visual cues, food journaling, and making food less visible and accessible. Dr. Painter will also present techniques to help consumers be aware of their eating patterns and provide ways to reduce intake. He will also discuss current research regarding mindful eating and modifying the eating environment to encourage consumers to make better choices.
