DAVID KESSLER THE END OF OVEREATING PDF

Kessler Inside this book — We have presumed that the wisdom of the body is maintained through a feedback system known as homeostasis. By closely matching food intake and energy expenditure, this biological strategy has allowed us to consume hundreds of thousands of calories every year without losing or gaining much weight. The brain is the command center of an elaborate communications network essential to energy regulation. This network involves the brain, the central and peripheral nervous systems, the gastrointestinal tract, the hormonal system, fat tissue, and more. But this homeostatic system, while relevant, turns out to be less powerful than many scientists have assumed. Our bodies would compensate, either by burning more calories or by shutting down our appetites.

Kessler Inside this book — We have presumed that the wisdom of the body is maintained through a feedback system known as homeostasis. By closely matching food intake and energy expenditure, this biological strategy has allowed us to consume hundreds of thousands of calories every year without losing or gaining much weight.

The brain is the command center of an elaborate communications network essential to energy regulation. This network involves the brain, the central and peripheral nervous systems, the gastrointestinal tract, the hormonal system, fat tissue, and more.

But this homeostatic system, while relevant, turns out to be less powerful than many scientists have assumed. Our bodies would compensate, either by burning more calories or by shutting down our appetites.

Obviously, that is not happening. Over the past decade, scientists have tried to explain this failure by searching for defects in the homeostatic system. Their results have been disappointing. I had always felt that I was obsessive about food, and that the food industry was the devil who tempted me with sweet, fatty, salty goods!

Turns out, I was obsessive about food and the industry does do this. But this book showed me how I am not alone and my battle with food could be turned around. The End of Overeating made me think about my actions and reactions to unhealthy food.

It changed how I view my relationship to food. A lot of it was stuff we already new from books like Skinny Bitch or reading online or Youtube vids or whatever. Also talked about high fructose corn syrup and the fat-sugar-salt loading.

The food industry is using food science to engineer foods that we can seriously become addicted to.

The End of Overeating by David A. Kessler PDF

E-mail: ude. Kessler presents an engaging perspective of the obesity epidemic. About two-thirds of adults in the United States are overweight. The number of overweight and obese children is also growing at an alarming rate. These trends have adverse consequences on health because obesity increases the risk of chronic diseases, notably diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, obstructive sleep apnea, and cancer. Obesity is also a major cause of disability and may shorten lifespan.
