    • "Furthermore, we have found that the heavier a person is -- French or American -- the more they rely on external cues to tell them to stop eating and the less they rely on whether they felt full," said senior author Brian Wansink, the John S. Dyson Professor of Marketing and director of the Cornell Food and Brand Lab in the Department of Applied Economics and Management, now on leave to serve as executive director of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion until January 2009.

  • 13. Determine your proper weight
    • http://www.nytimes.com/ref/health/bmi.html
    • "An easy way to determine your own desirable body weight is to use the following formula: "
      • Women: 100 pounds for the first 5 feet of height plus 5 pounds for each additional inch.
      • Men: 106 pounds of body weight for the first 5 feet of height plus 6 pounds for each additional inch.
      • For a small body frame, 10% should be subtracted. For a large frame, 10% should be added.
