Dr. Traci Mann has researched the ability of weight loss diets to do what they say they will and found some surprising results - they don't work. More specifically, they do not help a person keep the weight off over time.

In this interview with University of Minnesota professor Traci Mann, she tells us the premise of her book, "Secrets From The Eating Lab", and why she is uniquily qualified to write this unbiased book.

In this interview, Dr. Mann tells us:

  • Her strategies to lose, and maintain, body weight
  • Why willpower doesn't work
  • Why dieting is worse for you than doing nothing
  • The power of an "implementation intention"
  • That "Calories in - Calories out" is a myth
  • Comfort foods are not comforting, and
  • Diet soda is worse for you than the sugar versions
