Many of us find ourselves powerless in front of a bag of crisps, a packet of biscuits, the last slice of pizza. But why is that so many of us simply can't say no?
In The End of Overeating, David Kessler, the dynamic former head of the US Food and Drug Administration, exposes how modern food manufacturers have hijacked the brains of millions by turning our meals into perfectly-engineed portions of fat, salt and sugar.
The result is a ticking time-bomb of obesity, heart conditions and a mass of health problems around the globe. Examining why we are often powerless in the face of such combinations, David Kessler reveals how our appetites have been and are increasingly conditioned by the hyper-palatable foods to simply keep eating - all the time.
The End of Overeating reveals how he overcame his own cravings by changing the choices he makes, and produces a clear plan and vital tools for reclaiming our cravings - and our bodies.
