In this episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast, I am joined by professor and author Traci Mann.
Traci is a Professor of Social and Health Psychology at the University of Minnesota. Her research aims to identify and understand the behaviors associated with eating regulation and body image as well as the process of self-control during health behavior changes.
Traci is principal investigator of the Health and Eating Laboratory, which uses diverse research methods to study interesting topics such as increasing food consumption in NASA astronauts, increasing vegetable intake in elementary school children, and the ability of foods to reduce social and physical pain.
She is also the author of the book, Secrets from the Eating Lab.
We talk about:
- Traci’s journey to researching “food regulation” and body image
- What blew her mind when she learned about the real science of weight loss
- Her experience with dieting
- The myth of willpower
- Why doctors still prescribe weight loss
- What to do instead of dieting
- The many reasons why lasting weight loss does not work
- and so much more.
