Présentation de l'éditeur

Obesity has hit epidemic levels. In the developed, and much of the developing world, it is now 'normal' to be overweight with a BMI of 25 or more. And the global population is getting fatter all the time as a powerful mix of cheap foods, social behaviours and commercial pressures drives us to the biscuit tin again and again and again.

But this is not the worst of it.

The sugars, salts and fats that are slowly killing us are at the same time essential for our survival. Our brains reward us when we eat them, filling us with feelings of pleasure. But modern abundance has pushed this too far - in this Guardian Short, James Erlichman lays out a frank argument in which we have become addicted to food. Full of diverse research and exploring the science of obesity and the social history of what we eat for our meals (and snacks), 'Addicted to Food' is a powerful call for us to understand the terrible catch-22 that is driving our ever-expanding waistlines. Written with humour and passion, it will not just make you look at that custard cream in a different fashion, but enable you to understand why it tastes so delicious in the first place.


James Erlichman is a visiting fellow at the University of Sussex, where he recently completed a PhD in public health science policy. Previously he has worked as a journalist and author, broadcaster, and for two years as a senior scientific researcher at the International Obesity TaskForce, a London-based charity.

HASH(0x96764c54) étoiles sur 5 Tobacco, drugs, and alcohol. The fourth and worst addiction, food. 6 mars 2013
Par Amelia Gremelspacher - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I read this piece over my Big Mac with a break for my Shamrock Shake. Really only half kidding, this manifesto on the power of sugar, salt, and fat discusses the physiological process of food addiction. We are still the primitive hunter gatherers physically. We are endowed with the drive to eat when possible, and to conserve energy. Our technology has outpaced our brains' evolution, and the old drives may kill us.

This information is not groundbreaking, it has been in the discussions of the obesity epidemic. But this format is well organized, logical and easy to access. It is an excellent digest of the thoughts of this issue with some new ways of approaching the issue and containing some interesting research.

This puts obesity in a new and deadly serious light. Compelling reading for anyone who can't eat just one... l wish the author had gone a step further to look into the effectiveness of AA's sister group Overeaters Anonymous as an obvious beacon of hope for a population trapped in this catch-22.

HASH(0x96764e64) étoiles sur 5 Interesting but without references it looses half of the credibility 2 mai 2013
Par Fernando Curiel Villasana - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The subject is important enough so that the editors should make sure it has credibility. That was not achieved because without references this is as credible as the literature about speculations over the superpowers of the Egyptian sphinx. I do believe the affirmations made by the author are real, but hey, let us make sure they do not go into the shadows because it is more difficult to include references. They do not have to be formal or academic paper style, but precise names and publications within the book like in the book Breasts are just right.

Everything presented here has been written and explained before, so there's not much that's new or different. It's a nice gathering of information in one place.

What an interesting read. I immediately dropped the sugar and starchy foods that were causing me to stay ravenously hungry. It makes so much sense. The hunger is under control and I am almost to the point where I can look at a cupcake without wanting to wolf it down. I don't know about weight ( not ready to face a scale yet) but my comfortable jeans had to go in the donate box because they were falling off. Will see the Doctor in a few months and find out about the blood sugar, lipid etc numbers
