The End of Overeating by David Kessler

Why do some people have more trouble with their weight then others? Do obese people face some of the same challenges as alcoholics, drug users, and others with addiction problems? The author, who also struggles with obesity, looks to science for answers. He also discusses how the food industry processes food to make it more profitable and for some additive. There's a lot to digest in David Keller's book, but it does offer a solution to the obesity problem in the United States through behavior modification. If you often wonder or question your relationship with food, especially as the holiday season with all its sweet and savory treats looms near, The End of Overeating can offer some answers.
