Most of us know what it feels like to fall under the spell of food--when a handful of chips leads to an empty bag. But it's harder to understand why we can't seem to stop eating, even when we know better. Dr. David Kessler, the dynamic former FDA commissioner who reinvented the food label and tackled the tobacco industry, now cracks the code of overeating by explaining how our bodies and minds are changed when we consume foods that contain sugar, fat, and salt. Food manufacturers create products by manipulating these ingredients to stimulate our appetites, setting in motion a cycle of desire and consumption that ends with a nation of overeaters. This book explains for the first time why it is exceptionally difficult to resist certain foods and why it's so easy to overindulge. Dr. Kessler's cutting-edge investigation offers new insights and helpful tools to help us find a solution.--From publisher description.… (plus d'informations)

This book seemed to keep repeating the same facts over and over again. There was some good information, but it was a little to scientific and a little to repetitious for me. ( )

What a waste of space and good paper this book is! The author takes information enough to fill MAYBE one page and repeats it over and over and over and over again for three hundred pages. There an unbelievable amount of meaningless, useless fluff in the text. Almost worse than this is how not a single chapter is longer than 3 pages. My IQ scrore has halved from reading this.

FYI, here's every bit of real material in the book:

1. If you eat foods containing lots of salt, fat and sugar, your brain chemistry changes to make you seek out the same kinds of foods over and over again, regardless of whether you are truly hungry.

2. The food industry has been packing salt, fat and sugar into procssed, packaged, restaurant and fast foods in higher quantities than ever. This is why America is obese.

3. It is very very hard, almost impossible, to stop eating these superrich foods once you start, because of the obsessive hold they have on a person.

4. Some people seem to be wired to have greater ability to resist this food than other people.

5. If you overeat, stop (but don't ask how).

There. I just saved you thirty bucks and an hour or two of your life. You're welcome. ( )

Did you ever wonder why you "can't eat just one" of your favorite treat? Here's an explanation that combines marketing, psychology and neurology. All in a readable and interesting language that makes sense to the non-scientific reader. ( )

Book was okay. I thought the chapters could be combined into longer ones--as it is now, the chapters are rather short and honestly felt like the author jumped around too much.

It seems to be an expansion of "Mindless Eating", which I felt as a book did much better at getting at the heart of what causes people to overeat. There's more biology and this one, with discussion of chemicals and the brain, but I thought the book could have used a stronger editor to make everything flow. ( )

Interesting stories, nice to know the state of our processed food supply. Granted it is scary! ( )

It's a quick read, partly because of the short chapters, and partly because it runs a little to repetition, but for all that, it's a fascinating read.
