Summary
David Lewis and Margaret Leitch examine the social and psychological causes of our planet's obesity pandemic. Their ground-breaking research highlights the behaviour of corporations that relentlessly promote foods high in sugar, fat and salt, and shows that these 'junk' foods have shockingly similar neurological effects to hard drugs. Examining the prevalence of food cues which unconsciously stimulate our desire to consume, they debunk the myths of fad diets and slimming pills, and suggest practical, easily implemented strategies for sustainable weight loss
