Many of those hot keto meals to be found elsewhere are going to keep you fat.)

Eat Like a Bear Psychology, in development (“beta”)

A video-based course on the mindset of weight loss and weight maintenance from a social choice theoretic framework. Amanda Rose’s Ph.D. training in political science focused on social choice theory.  Why was Amanda’s weight loss and weight maintenance successful “this time” (for the first time in her life)? A combination of unusual circumstances, including her background in social choice theory.

The course currently has 24 unique course videos, and it brings in an additional 11 videos that are available publicly on the YouTube channel.

This content is highly unique and based on Amanda Rose’s analysis of primary research in social choice theory and addiction combined with her observation of thousands of community members over nearly three years. This course is not a rehash of everyone else’s self-help work, nor some sort of collection of inspirational memes from social media.
