Marc David here, Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. I love finding useful studies that help push the envelope – even if just a little – around a more integrative and intelligent approach to eating psychology, healing and nutrition.

I’ve grown up in the sciences and have learned that the fields of scientific and psychological research are often like the wild west – there’s a lot of shooting back and forth, and not always a lot of agreement. With that said, consider how many of the studies listed here may likely validate what you already intuit, or know, or believe to be true.
