Episode 108: Secrets From the Eating Lab w/ Traci Mann PhD

This month’s deep dive on the podcast is into the wild and seriously misinformed world of dieting. I appropriately titled the theme of this month’s podcast: The Death of Dieting.

Dieting sucks and more importantly it doesn’t work for the long haul and to better help us understand why that is the case, I have invited Traci Mann to be a guest on the show. Traci is a professor of psychology, founder of the Health and Eating Lab at the University of Minnesota and author of Secrets from the Eating Lab: The Science of Weight Loss, the Myth of Willpower and Why You Should Never Diet Again.

  • We cover a tremendous amount of ground in today’s interview including:
  • Why diets don’t work.
  • Why you should focus on living on the low end of your set weight range
  • The Myth of willpower
  • Strategies for what will improve your relationship with food
  • Why “obesity will not kill you”
  • The incredible health benefits of exercise and why weight loss should not be the primary goal of exercise
