Insight – Avoiding Holiday Snacking (Extended)


  With the holiday season in full bloom, Doug sits down with two guests – Bangkosh Vardhanabhuti, assistant professor of food science, and Heather Leidy, assistant professor in the department of nutrition and exercise physiology – to talk about some ways to feel fuller longer and thus, avoid packing on extra pounds from too many sweet treats.

Insight is a production of the University of Missouri College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources.


Doug Randall is the host of Insight. He is a professor emeritus of biochemistry and served as founding director of MU’s Interdisciplinary Plant Group for 28 years. He joined the MU faculty in 1971. Among his numerous career accomplishments include serving two terms a member of the National Science Board from 2002-2014.
