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 )
6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 150 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

The weight of the nation : surprising lessons about diets, food, and fat from the extraordinary series from HBO Documentary Films by John Hoffman( Book )
3 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 62 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"--
