Awesome Mindless Eating Webinar (Also 1st Weighty Matters Giveaway)

Received a nice email last week to inform me of a pending webinar that Dr. Brian Wansink is presenting.

For newer readers of my blog Brian is one of my favourite researchers. He's the Director of the Cornell Food and Brands Lab, the Executive Director of the USDA's Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion and the author of Mindless Eating.

He's speaking in an online webinar this Thursday from 4pm-6pm and here's his talk's description,

"In this lively and information-packed two hours, Dr. Wansink teaches you his revolutionary Mindless Eating Solution and helps you develop ways to mindlessly eat better in your home, work, or client base. Learn how to identify hidden persuaders in your immediate environment that lead you to overeat and gain weight. Dr. Wansink also shares his fascinating research into everything from “100 calorie” packs and mouthwatering descriptions on menus to getting pre-k children to eat more fruits and vegetables and parents acting as nutritional gatekeepers. Most importantly, you will discover how to get a grip on mindless eating."
Having seen Brian speak a number of times I can tell you firsthand - he's a fantastic speaker being both remarkably informative as well as remarkably entertaining.

The cost is $15 and you can buy your tickets and read more about the talk by clicking here.

That said, I've got two free passes to give away. If you're interested in winning one, leave a comment by 8pm tonight. I'll then randomly draw two names and post the winners in tomorrows blog along with instructions on how to claim your prize.
