The weight of the nation : to win, we have to lose ; [surprising lessons about diets, food, and fat from the extraordinary HBO documentary series] by John Hoffman( Sound Recording )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 66 libraries worldwide
The weight of the nation is out of control. We're fat and getting fatter. When more than two-thirds of adults are overweight or obese, there's no denying we have a serious problem. But whose fault is it? Americans are more health conscious than ever before. Since the 1970s the mortality rate from both cardiovascular disease and stroke has dropped dramatically. Stores have more healthy, low-fat food options; fewer Americans are smoking; and many people now regularly monitor their blood pressure and cholesterol levels. We can't blame our obesity epidemic on a big decline in personal responsibility or on our collective failure to stay on a diet. So what can we blame? HBO and the Institute of Medicine, part of the National Academy of Sciences, brings you the hard truth: there are powerful forces at work in the world and in our bodies that make it too easy to gain weight, too hard to lose it, and even harder to keep it off. But there's reason for hope and proven ways to overcome all these obstacles

Ellie and her friends are thrilled when they find out two world-famous dancers are giving a masterclass to six lucky Royal Ballet School pupils. But Kate's behaving strangely and her dancing is suffering. Surely she'd confide in her friends if something was seriously wrong?
Lara's perfect performance by Alexandra Moss( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 62 libraries worldwide
"Dear Diary, Oops - better shut this journal up fast! Lara's just walked in - and glared at me of course. She'd be glaring at me worse than ever if she knew what I'd just written about her . . ." Ellie can't understand why Lara's being so mean - OK, so Ellie knocked her over in heir all-important Final Audition for The Royal Ballet School, but it was an accident! It looks like Lara will never forgive Ellie . . . Or could her black mood be hiding something else?
The weight of the nation : to win, we have to lose : surprising lessons about diets, food, and fat from the extraordinary series from HBO Documentary Films by John Hoffman( file )
4 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 58 libraries worldwide
America's ever-expanding waistline-we see it, we hear about it, and we worry about it, but can anything be done about it? We know all the usual suspects: red meat, dairy, white flour, refined sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, a lack of exercise, too much television-the list goes on and on. It seems simple, right? Not really. There's a lot more going on below the surface when it comes to what America is eating for dinner-and breakfast and lunch and in between. People today work harder and take better care of their health than any previous generation. So how could two-thirds of us fail to measure up when it comes to eating right and exercising? HBO and the National Academy of Sciences' Institute of Medicine have joined together to bring you the nation's foremost experts and definitive research on weight and weight loss. The Weight of the Nation digs deep to uncover what's going on in our minds, in our stomachs, in corporate America, on our farms, and in society's overall love of food. The solution to America's obesity epidemic will not come from quick-fix diets or a new national obsession with working out. The answer will only come from learning more about how our bodies conserve energy, why we seek out and consume certain foods, and how our world compels us to eat a lot more and move a lot less than we should. The Weight of the Nation provides you with all the tools you need-and gives you the power to better understand your relationships with food and physical activity-so you can change the way you eat and move for the rest of your life

The weight of the nation : surprising lessons about diets, food, and fat from the extraordinary HBO documentary series by John Hoffman( Book )

"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"--
