Very interesting and funny
I just the Mindless Eating episode and was thoroughly entertained. It wasn't just an insight to my own behavior but it was a good way to know how I can correct certain aspects of my daily eating process.
The professor was a very jolly person who kept the whole lecture in a funny and informative manner.
