Psychology of Dieting
Fall, 2016 -- Faculty Recognition Day
A majority of Americans are overweight or obese, a majority (80%) are concerned about their weight, a majority have gone on diets and weight loss programs (spending over $33 billion each year), and yet we keep getting bigger and bigger. While a lack of nutritional understanding is one major problem, even knowledgeable people tend to gain weight over time and practice unhealthy dieting behavior. Psychological research findings may help determine why our current dieting behaviors are not only not working, but actually making things worse. The goals of this presentation are 1) to unravel some of the psychological problems of dieting, 2) explain how even the most motivated and intelligent people still seem to sabotage their own efforts, and how psychology may be a tool we can use to become a healthier society.
