Why Smart People Make Bad Food Choices

The Invisible Influences that Guide Our Thinking

By Jack Bobo

Harness the Psychology of Food for a Healthy Lifestyle

“...essential read for those of us trying to understand the mysteries behind the food choices and eating habits of today's consumer.” —Stephen M Ostroff, MD, former deputy commissioner, Foods and Veterinary Medicine, FDA

Author and CEO Jack Bobo is a food psychology expert with over 20 years advising four U. S. Secretaries of State on food and agriculture. He’s here to personally guide you on smarter food choices and improving your quality of life.

Elusive healthy lifestyle. We have access to more nutrition facts and diet plans now than ever before. Consumers have never known more about nutrition and yet, have never been more overweight. For most Americans, maintaining a balanced diet is more difficult than doing their taxes. What are we doing wrong?

Learn to eat better. Jack Bobo reveals how the psychology of food has been invisibly controlling us all along, in the grocery aisles, at restaurants, in front of the refrigerator, and in every other place we make crucial food choices. Behavioral science is changing the way we think about food and showing us how to develop healthy meal plans and deliver more balanced diets.

Apply behavioral science to your diet plan. A balanced diet creates a healthy lifestyle routine and better quality of life. You can move beyond fad diets, pop science, and calls for ever greater willpower. Explore the deeper causes of hidden influences and mental shortcuts our minds use to process information and how they often prevent us from healthy eating habits.

Why Smart People Make Bad Food Choices helps you:

  • Understand the psychology behind hidden influences
  • Make better decisions that lead toward a healthy diet
  • Fear less and enjoy more the food you eat
  • Become a positive force for the diets of those around you

If you enjoyed books like Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy; SuperLifeHow to Be a Conscious Eater; or How Not to Die; you’ll love Why Smart People Make Bad Food Choices.

#1 New Release in Eastern Philosophy, Taoism

With more than 3.5 million copies sold, this beautifully curated collection of daily quotes about life  seeks to influence the way you live the next 24 hours. The result of more peaceful days? A more peaceful planet.

Peace is always possible, even in the midst of a storm.

Featuring inspirational quotes about finding peace and honoring love, this positive thinking book offers the perfect touchstone at this crucial time in history—a time when millions are seeking quiet moments and mindful meditation.

Today can open the door to a new way of living. Love can be a powerful influence in our lives. It’s the total absence of judgment. It’s pure acceptance. It is the inner voice reminding us that all is well and God is present, right here and right now. The overwhelming peace we feel is all the evidence we need of God’s constancy. The expression of love quiets our minds and we are flooded with inner peace. How much gentler our lives would be if we dispensed with all expressions but love. But we don’t live in a world that truly values peace. What if we can turn away from constant judgment and offer love instead, in every situation? By doing so we will be sowing peace.

Recover from Job Loss with Support of Other Women

"This is the first book that I know of that truly helps you learn from women from many professional sectors how to recover from big setbacks in our work lives. It’s a must read.” —Dr. Elena Pezzini, organizational psychologist

Successful women show how they reclaimed and rebuilt their personal power and careers after being fired from a job and being rendered powerless by their employers.

Practical job loss recovery tools for women. When women get fired, it is often devastating, traumatic, and isolating. We experience a sudden powerlessness that can destroy our confidence and feelings of self-worth. We grieve. We feel broken. It affects our self-esteem, our financial well-being, our professional identity, and our ability to look for other work―in short, it affects our entire way of life. How, then, does a woman navigate the emotional impact of this event? With other women.

You are not alone. In Betrayed by Work, authors Julia Erickson, MBA, and Suzanne Vosburg, PhD, bear witness to the stories of women just like you―and just like them. This book shows how women lost their jobs, describes what happened to them immediately and in the aftermath, validates women’s feelings about being fired, and offers a source of hope and companionship to those of us coping with either our own job loss or the sudden job loss of someone we know or love.

Discover:

  • True stories from women who are honest about how they were fired and their feelings
  • Key points to help process each story and apply its lesson to your own experience
  • Practical takeaways and suggestions to help you cope with job loss
