The Problem With Restriction

The Problem With Restriction

I’m currently reading Fat by Robert Pool. It looks at the research around weight and obesity going all the way back to the 1800s. He speaks about all the different theories that have come and gone and how our understanding has changed over the last hundred years or so. (There is a section in the book where Pool talks about experiments with milkshakes and ice creams, something I’ve spoken about before.) One idea, which was popular for a time, was that the heavier someone was, the more susceptible they were to external cues. That if they saw advertisements about food or food was placed in … [Read more...]

Speaking In Your Office And Podcast Shows

Speaking

This last year, more than any other point in my career, I’ve been using my voice to talk about health, nutrition and all the accompanying ideas I cover in this regard.

Physical Attractiveness Bias

Physical Attractiveness Bias

I’ve written previously about the halo effect. The psychological phenomenon in which we take an individual positive trait, like someone being attractive, and generalise this across their whole life, assuming they must be happier, earn more money, be more honest, etc. I see the same thing happening in the area of health and fitness, where if someone is attractive or has a physique that many aspire to have, then we assume that this person knows what they talking about. It’s also known as physical attractiveness bias. And with the rise of Instagram and Facebook health “celebrities” this is … [Read more...]
