>> reporter: it's a common belief you need to tackle the mind if you want to successfully tackle the belly, but how do you do that? enter food psychologist and behavioral economist brian wansick. what is a food psychologist? >> a food psychologist is somebody who studies eating behavior with the subjective to come up with solutions to help people eat a little less and enjoy fruit a whole lot more. >> reporter: he literally wrote the book on "mindless eating," now in his latest offering, "slim by design," and helps us master those environments. >> we want to think we are master of our influence? we are not. the lighting in the room, what noise we here is by your own volition. >> reporter: can you show me the choices i can make during the course of the day? >> yeah, let's do it. >> reporter: americans buy and eat 80% of their food within 5 miles of where they live. it's a concept he calls your food radius.

8:21 am
more dessert and more fried food and more to drink. >> reporter: why a skinny table? >> it's well lit. okay. the prime is self discipline and awareness. statistically you are twice as likely to order a salad. half as as likely to order dessert. >> reporter: finally the rule of two. >> you can have a cola, an appetizer, a piece of bread and you can have a dessert. you just can't have everything. to good health. >> reporter: absolutely. and he was having diet soda, no less. a couple of interesting tips here. clean the clutter from your kitchen. people with a cluttered kitchen are more prone to mindless eating. people with snacks on the counter are more likely to mindlessly snack. one study showed people who keep boxes of cereal on the counter, ready for this? they weigh up to 21 pounds more than their neighbor. brian stopped by my house. i may have had a box or two on the counter. 21 pounds is a lot. you don't think about that making a choice of moving the
