The weight of the nation : surprising lessons about diets, food, and fat from the extraordinary HBO documentary films by John Hoffman ( Book )
2 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Readers know America is getting fatter but might not know that 75% of us may be overweight or obese by 2018, that children are at risk for obesity and diabetes as never before, or that obesity is the number one cause of the rise in our nation's health care costs. They might also believe, like many Americans, that obesity results from a lack of self-control. But people today work harder and take better care of their health than ever before. So how could three-quarters of us somehow suddenly lack willpower when it comes to eating right and exercising? HBO, together with the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies, has gathered the nation's foremost experts to explain how we got here and how we can overcome the forces that drive us to eat too much and move too little. --Is exercise enough to help most people maintain an ideal weight? --Could weighing too much during pregnancy set my child up for a lifetime of poor health? --Do "fat kids" ever grow out of it? --How do lack of sleep and too much stress contribute to weight gain? --Why can I eat the same amount as my friend, but I gain weight and she never does? HBO's four-part documentary series premieres in May 2012 and examines the serious health consequences of obesity, shows viewers how to help themselves and their children live healthier lives, looks at the obesity epidemic from every angle, and explores the growing epidemic of childhood obesity"--

Food and addiction : a comprehensive handbook ( Book )
8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Can certain foods hijack the brain in ways similar to drugs and alcohol, and is this effect sufficiently strong to contribute to major diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease, and hence constitute a public health menace? Terms like "chocoholic" and "food addict" are part of popular lore, some popular diet books discuss the concept of addiction, and there are food addiction programs with names like Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous. Clinicians who work with patients often hear the language of addiction when individuals speak of irresistible cravings, withdrawal symptoms when starting a diet, and increasing intake of palatable foods over time. But what does science show, and how strong is the evidence that food and addiction is a real and important phenomenon? Food and Addiction: A Comprehensive Handbook brings scientific order to the issue of food and addiction, spanning multiple disciplines to create the foundation for what is a rapidly advancing field and to highlight needed advances in science and public policy. The book assembles leading scientists and policy makers from fields such as nutrition, addiction, psychology, epidemiology, and public health to explore and analyze the scientific evidence for the addictive properties of food. It provides complete and comprehensive coverage of all subjects pertinent to food and addiction, from basic background information on topics such as food intake, metabolism, and environmental risk factors for obesity, to diagnostic criteria for food addiction, the evolutionary and developmental bases of eating addictions, and behavioral and pharmacologic interventions, to the clinical, public health, and legal and policy implications of recognizing the validity of food addiction. Each chapter reviews the available science and notes needed scientific advances in the field"--Provided by publisher

Feeding frenzy : the food industry, marketing & the creation of a health crisis ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Over the past three decades, obesity rates in the U.S. have more than doubled for children and tripled for adolescents -- and a startling 70% of adults are now obese or overweight. The result has been a widening epidemic of obesity-related health problems, including coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and Type 2 diabetes. While discussions about this spiraling health crisis have tended to focus on the need for more exercise and individual responsibility, Feeding Frenzy trains its focus squarely on the responsibility of the processed food industry and the outmoded government policies it benefits from. It lays bare how taxpayer subsidies designed to feed hungry Americans during the Great Depression have enabled the food industry to flood the market with a rising tide of cheap, addictive, high calorie food products, and offers an engrossing look at the tactics of the multibillion-dollar marketing machine charged with making sure that every one of those surplus calories is consumed"--Container
