Why Are Eating Habits So Hard to Change? (and How We Can Leverage Our Brain to Do the Work for Us)

Judson Brewer, MD, PhD

Why are eating habits so hard to change?


Why doesn’t willpower work to change eating habits? And how we can leverage our brain to do the work for us? Discover one simple ingredient to change eating habits: awareness.
Jud Brewer, MD, PhD, (“Dr. Jud”) is back to dissect how long it really takes to break a bad habit or form a healthy one. He is a New York Times best-selling author and thought leader in the field of habit change and the “science of self-mastery,” who blends over 20 years of experience with mindfulness training and a career in scientific research.
He is the director of research and innovation at Brown University’s Mindfulness Center and an associate professor in their School of Medicine.
Dr. Jud returns as a People's Choice winner for BrainHealth Best Talks, a look back at some of Center for BrainHealth's best talks in celebration of our 25th anniversary.
