The Hundred Year Diet Summary à 2 Read ´ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ç Susan Yager Susan Yager Ç 2 Characters A lively cultural history of the American weight loss industry that explores the origins of our obsession with dietingAs a nation battling an obesity epidemic we spend than 35 billion annually on diets and diet regimens Our weight is making us sick unhappy and bigger than ever and we are willing to hand over our hard earned money to fix the problem But most people don’t know that the diet industry started cashing. I was interested in this book because I am in the middle of a medically supervised diet plan to try to take off the last few decade s worth of excess weight I don t recall how I had slipped onto the road to obesity in middle age but I do remember the half measures I d tried to get myself off of it on my own It seemed clear that it was all a matter of powerful forces than an individual could comprehend unaidedThis is a survey through all the attempts to discourage Americans from growing obese sometimes on scientific principles sometimes not starting in the 19th century The most revealing aspect was to see the way the same ideas would come around a generation or two later It points to the current day understanding that appetite and metabolism is controlled by a complicated interplay of many factors difficult to codify in a simple diet that suits the lifestyle of today In the second half of the book they described a number of weight loss medications which came into vogue in the last few decades Besides these there were also the synthetic foods and additives marketed by the food industry with the ultimate goal of increasing profits The topic has all become harder for an average consumer to navigate without help and this book is a good way to gain a perspective on how we have all gotten to this state

The Hundred Year Diet Summary à 2 Read ´ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ç Susan Yager Susan Yager Ç 2 Characters Tion it was an Ascetic Nation valuing convenience over culinary delightLearn how one of the best fed countries in the world developed some of the worst nutritional habits and why the respect for food evident in other nations is lacking in America Filled with food history cultural trivia and unforgettable personalities The Hundred Year Diet sheds new light on an overlooked piece of our weight loss puzzle its origins. Lots of interesting information here about the beginnings of America s obsession with diet weights and the evils of food I would have liked detail about the different diet doctors because those sections were fascinatingI felt that it ran out of steam in the end Yager doesn t have anything very interesting to say about the current food landscape and I thought her conclusion that everyone was going to start listening to Michael Pollan and stop buying so much processed food was wildly unfounded People watching cooking as a spectator sport on the Food Network does NOT mean that they are going to change the way they eat as she contends if anything those shows just underline food preparation as something only professionals do not a task suited to home cooks She also seems to think that losing weight and keeping it off long term is a simple proposition if only it were I would have liked examination of how the very act of dieting and then regaining weight may well set us up to become heavier than ever Worth reading but shouldn t be the only book about food and our bizarre cultural approach to it you pick up
