Description - Food Fight by Kelly D. Brownell
Now, in paper-- Kelly Brownell, Ph.D., Director of the Yale Center for Eating and Weight Disorders and one of the most respected and sought-after researchers in this field, describes the deeply entrenched biological and cultural forces that lead us to overeat and become physically inactive and outlines creative, innovative, and controversial solutions to the problem. The hardcover edition of Food Fight was cited in numerous articles in such national publications as USA Today, the Washington Post, Newsweek, Time Magazine, Shape, the Los Angeles Times, the Balitmore Sun, and the Newark Star. It has become part of our national dialogue on the obesity crisis. Brownell cites much of his own original research in revealing the enormity of the problem, and offers solutions in the realm of public policy (tax junk food more heavily and use the proceeds to make healthy foods more affordable and available) and personal action (fight for better food in your child's school, take simple steps to improve your own family's eating and physical activity habits). All from an expert whose credentials and profile are very impressive and highly visible.
