This public lecture was delivered by Dr Chris McLeod, Lecturer in the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences at Loughborough University, on Tuesday 23rd May at 5:30pm.
In this talk, Dr Chris McLeod explored why we eat particular foods, in particular portion sizes, and in particular contexts. Chris discussed how our learned association between a food, its portion size and context is highly influential in determining how much we eat and the nutrients we ingest. His research provides some pause for thought regarding the potential benefits, including weight management, to eating foods in unusual contexts, and will answer the somewhat unusual question: “Should we eat food in unusual contexts to help manage our weight?”.
