For a marriage or relationship to work better often only requires a change in attitude.

Mike Carruthers:
What would you guess are the biggest image mistakes professional men make?

 

William Cane:
Well the 2 biggest mistakes that men make are they fail to polish their shoes and comb their hair. George Steinbrenner the former owner of the New York Yankees was very, very wealthy and successful but he always carried a comb and before he met anybody he stepped in front of a mirror and he made sure every hair was in place.

Interview with Dr. Brian Wansink, author of the book Slim by Design: Mindless Eating Solutions for Everyday Life

 

________________

 

Mike Carruthers:
We’ve known for some time that the size of your dinner plate can influence how much you eat.

 

Dr. Brian Wansink:
So if you have a 12 inch plate which is what most of us have you’ll serve about 22% more of a food on a 12 inch plate than a 10 inch plate. Because 4 ounces of pasta on a 10 inch plate looks like a full plate 4 ounces on a 12 inch plate looks like an appetizer so you add a little bit more.

Interview with Dr. Brian Wansink, author of the book Slim by Design: Mindless Eating Solutions for Everyday Life

 

________________

 

Mike Carruthers:
Whether you know it or not you have a preference how your food is presented on a plate.

 

Dr. Brian Wansink:
American adults for instance prefer to have the main course right, front, center of the plate. And then we also prefer to have the vegetable on the left and that ends up being almost a nationwide preference for most North Americans.

________________

 

Mike Carruthers:
Now here's an interesting view of marriage.

 

Judith Viorst:
Since it's impossible to be in love with each other all the time, marriage keeps you together when you fall out of love and gives you enough time to fall back in again.
