About this title:

Synopsis: [This is the Audiobook CD Library Edition in vinyl case.]

[Foreword by Kelly D. Brownell, PhD]

[Afterword by Harvey V. Fineberg, MD, PhD]

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. -- Welcome to the anti-diet book.

From the Back Cover:

America’s ever-expanding waistline: We see it, we hear about it, and we worry about it! But can anything be done about it? 

 

We know all the usual suspects: red meat, dairy, white flour, refined sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, a lack of exercise, too much television, and the list goes on, and on, and on....

 

It seems simple! Right?...Not really. There’s a lot more going on below the surface when it comes to what America is eating for dinner (and breakfast and lunch and in between).

 

The Weight of the Nation digs deep to uncover what’s going on in our minds, in our stomachs, in corporate America, on our farms, and in society’s overall love of food.

 

The solution to America's obesity epidemic will not come from quick-fix diets or a new national obsession with working out. 

 

The answer will only come from learning more about how our bodies conserve energy, why we seek out and consume certain foods, and how our world compels us to eat  a lot more and move a lot less--than we should! 

 

The Weight of the Nation provides you with all the tools you need—and gives you the power to better understand your relationships with food and physical activity--so you can change the way you eat and move for the rest of your life.

Book Description Blackstone Audiobooks, 2012. CD-Audio. Condition: New. Unabridged. Language: English . Brand New. America s ever-expanding waistline--we see it, we hear about it, and we worry about it, but can anything be done about it? We know all the usual suspects: red meat, dairy, white flour, refined sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, a lack of exercise, too much television, and the list goes on and on. It seems simple, right? Not really. There s a lot more going on below the surface when it comes to what America is eating for dinner--and breakfast and lunch and in between. People today work harder and take better care of their health than any previous generation. So how could two-thirds of us fail to measure up when it comes to eating right and exercising? HBO and the National Academy of Sciences Institute of Medicine have joined together to bring you the nation s foremost experts and definitive research on weight and weight loss. The Weight of the Nation digs deep to uncover what s going on in our minds, in our stomachs, in corporate America, on our farms, and in society s overall love of food. The solution to America s obesity epidemic will not come from quick-fix diets or a new national obsession with working out. The answer will only come from learning more about how our bodies conserve energy, why we seek out and consume certain foods, and how our world compels us to eat a lot more and move a lot less than we should. Three years in the making, The Weight of the Nation answers such crucial questions as: -Is there such a thing as the right diet? -Am I doomed to yo-yo for the rest of my life? -How does stress affect my weight? -Is my slow metabolism making me fat? -How does carrying too much weight affect my health? -Why do I eat junk food even though I know it s unhealthy? -Is exercise enough to help most people maintain an ideal weight? -How can I keep weight off forever? The Weight of the Nation provides you with all the tools you need--and gives you the power to better understand your relationships with food and physical activity--so you can change the way you eat and move for the rest of your life.
