Dr. David A. Kessler, the dynamic and controversial former FDA commissioner known for his crusade against the tobacco industry, is taking on another business that's making Americans sick: the food industry. In The End of Overeating, Dr. Kessler shows us how our brain chemistry has been hijacked by the foods we most love to eat: those that contain stimulating combinations of fat, sugar, and salt. Drawn from the latest brain science as well as interviews with top physicians and food industry insiders, The End of Overeating exposes the food industry's aggressive marketing tactics and reveals shocking facts about how we lost control over food—and what we can do to get it back. For the millions of people struggling with their weight as well as those of us who simply can't seem to eat our favorite foods in moderation, Dr. Kessler's cutting-edge investigation offers valuable insights and practical answers for America's largest-ever public health crisis. There has never been a more thorough, compelling, or in-depth analysis of why we eat the way we do.

The Science and Politics of Dietary Advice

Popularized by Michael Pollan in his best-selling In Defense of Food, Gyorgy Scrinis's concept of nutritionism refers to the reductive understanding of nutrients as the key indicators of healthy food—an approach that has dominated nutrition science, dietary advice, and food marketing. Scrinis argues this ideology has narrowed and in some cases distorted our appreciation of food quality, such that even highly processed foods may be perceived as healthful depending on their content of "good" or "bad" nutrients. Investigating the butter versus margarine debate, the battle between low-fat, low-carb, and other weight-loss diets, and the food industry's strategic promotion of nutritionally enhanced foods, Scrinis reveals the scientific, social, and economic factors driving our modern fascination with nutrition. Scrinis develops an original framework and terminology for analyzing the characteristics and consequences of nutritionism since the late nineteenth century. He begins with the era of quantification, in which the idea of protective nutrients, caloric reductionism, and vitamins' curative effects took shape. He follows with the era of good and bad nutritionism, which set nutricentric dietary guidelines and defined the parameters of unhealthy nutrients; and concludes with our current era of functional nutritionism, in which the focus has shifted to targeted nutrients, superfoods, and optimal diets. Scrinis's research underscores the critical role of nutrition science and dietary advice in shaping our relationship to food and our bodies and in heightening our nutritional anxieties. He ultimately shows how nutritionism has aligned the demands and perceived needs of consumers with the commercial interests of food manufacturers and corporations. Scrinis also offers an alternative paradigm for assessing the healthfulness of foods—the food quality paradigm—that privileges food production and processing quality, cultural-traditional knowledge, and sensual-practical experience, and promotes less reductive forms of nutrition research and dietary advice.

Stop thinking about nutrition and start thinking about your child’s eating habits instead. You already know how to give your kids healthy food. But the hard part is getting them to eat it. After years of research and working with parents, Dina Rose, discovered a powerful truth: When parents focus solely on nutrition, their kids—surprisingly—eat poorly. But when families shift their emphasis to behaviors – the skills and habits kids are taught—they learn to eat right. Every child can learn to eat well—but only if you show them how to do it. Dr. Rose describes the three habits—proportion, variety, and moderation—all kids need to learn, and gives you clever, practical ways to teach these food skills. All children can learn: • How to confidently explore strange, new foods • How to know when they’re hungry and when they’re full • What to do when they say they’re “starving”—and about to attend a birthday party • How to branch out from easy-to-like prepackaged kid fare to more mature tastes and textures: savory, tangy, runny, crunchy. • How to engage in open and honest talk about food without yelling “I don’t like it!” With It's Not About the Broccoli, you can teach your children how to eat, and give them the skills they need for a lifetime of health and vitality.

In this book he marshalls a wide range of powerful evidence from business research and psychology that shows that the current model of work is not only not optimal, it is specfically counter-productive because it saps us of our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual energy. In order for us to perform at our best, we must make a set of key changes in our work lives -- and in order to develop the full potential of their work force, our managers and companies must institute changes that will provide us with the regular physical renewal, emotional reward, mental focus and stimulation; and sense of purpose and significance that we need.

"This resource is an exciting new book that features a balanced perspective about one of the most talked abouttopics of this would be a great resource for those who are interested in joining the fight to eradicate obesity and obesity-related consequences."--Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior "Lauren and Eric Rossen offer a well articulated account of the growing obesity epidemic in todayís society in an engaging, easily understood, and witty manner.

Jason P. A. Gallant, Ph.D. Chief Psychologist Boys Town Central Florida Behavioral Health Clinic Although research on obesity has accelerated over the past decade, the proportion of Americans considered obese has not declined. In order to address this critical public health challenge, obesity research has recently shifted from focusing purely on individual causes to viewing individuals within their "obesogenic" or living environments. Encompassing both schools of thought, Obesity 101 is the first volume to offer a broad and balanced perspective on the complex factors that influence obesity. The text combines current research from multiple perspectives to provide an introductory-level, reader-friendly overview of the history, causes, prevalence, consequences, treatments, and future trends in the prevention of obesity.

Wholesome food has healing properties, and when we purify our diet, a number of healing reactions may begin to arise from unresolved past experiences and strong emotions. These emotions get stored in our organs and connective tissue as “emotional scar tissue,” creating energy blockages that lead to pain. In Feed Your Body, Feed Your Soul, author Ara Wiseman outlines how eating the right amount of pure nutritious food can help begin to release and eliminate these unresolved emotions we have stored and carry around with us. Our bodies are very forgiving, and when we stop our harmful habits and behaviors and replace them with healthier ones, nature can give us a whole new opportunity for a wondrous life. Somewhere deep inside we all yearn for emotional balance and hope to find peace with the most fundamental necessity of life—our nourishment. Between the covers of this book, Ara shows us how. “In her book, Feed Your Body, Feed Your Soul, Ara Wiseman gives us an intimate glimpse into her own journey towards wholeness. She provides the essential building blocks for good nutritive practices, but, more importantly, places this useful information into a wholistic context. In the process of developing her themes, Ara provides liberal sprinklings of philosophical spices and condiments to enliven the dish. These quotations, aphorisms, and affirmations from mystics and spiritual philosophers inspire us to take a loving look at ourselves and give us the courage to choose a nourishing and healing path.” —Dr. Anthony Godfrey, PhD, ND, author of Deep Immunity “Ara Wiseman has written a multi-dimensional book that not only shows us the way to excellent physical health, but also the process of wholeness in relationships. Highly recommended.” —John Randolph Price, bestselling author and chairman of the Quartus Foundation

Essa pergunta intriga pais e pedagogos do mundo inteiro, e a resposta mais comum tende a ser que o potencial de sucesso de uma criança varia de acordo com sua inteligência. Mas, nas últimas décadas, pesquisadores vêm constatando que notas altas e testes de QI não são indicadores de uma educação de qualidade — e muito menos uma garantia de sucesso na vida. O jornalista Paul Tough coloca em debate o atual paradigma da educação e questiona o valor dado à ideia de que uma criança bem-sucedida é aquela capaz de memorizar todo o conteúdo transmitido na sala de aula. Em Como as crianças aprendem, o autor aborda com grande clareza o problema e alerta: não estamos dando a devida atenção ao desenvolvimento de qualidades não cognitivas, como curiosidade e a capacidade de lidar com o estresse. Com base em dados científicos, Tough defende que é possível proporcionar uma educação de qualidade tanto para alunos privilegiados quanto para as crianças e adolescentes que vivem em situação de pobreza e dependem de políticas públicas ineficientes. O objetivo: fazer com que nossos filhos estejam mais preparados para a vida e sejam capazes de conquistar realização pessoal e melhores oportunidades. Como as crianças aprendem, agora relançado com novo título, foi publicado no Brasil originalmente em 2014 como Uma questão de caráter. O livro permaneceu por mais de um ano na lista de mais vendidos do The New York Times e foi traduzido para 27 idiomas.
