The Hundred Year Diet

Read & Download The Hundred Year Diet Susan Yager ò 9 Read The Hundred Year Diet Free download ↠ 109 In long before the advent of the WhopperThe Hundred Year Diet is the story of America’s preoccupation with diet deprivation and weight loss From the groundbreaking measurement of the calorie to World War I voluntary rationing to the Atkins craze Susan Yager traces our relationship with food weight culture science and religion She reveals that long before America became a Fast Food Nation or even a Weight Loss Na. As the lengthy title explains this is a book about the American uest for a solution to being overweight including diets both faddish and sensible bizarre euipment pills manufactured foods and It starts a little over 100 years ago when the first fad diets in the US developed as part of certain evangelical Christian practices Eventually religious cults turned into health clinics and health clinics turned into weight loss resorts for the rich and famous Any actual science came much later and remains elusive to this day Many of the diets and their proponents are amusingly strange There s a slight undertone of mockery throughout the book but especially in the beginning I did not enjoy that Still it is interesting and enlightening to see the history of where the American fascination with weight loss came from and how it s developed over the years Note this is not some dispassionate historical study It is a book with an agenda to discredit useless dangerous weight loss techniues and to investigate possible causes and solutions regarding the current obesity problem What s interesting is that until the 1980s there was no serious problem with weight in this country Sure there were occasional fat people but there always have been Only recently has weight gain started to affect a majority of the population Long before that though Americans were obsessed with diets And maybe that was part of the problem Overall this is an interesting informative book which covers a crucial topic I would have liked a little less derision and a little open mindedness Even if the author fully intends to discredit something like say low carb diets it would be convincing if her opinion didn t seem predetermined In the end the causes of obesity seem elusive and varied sugar fat convenient tasty energy dense possibly addictive foods too little activity plastics medicines pesticides stress crash dieting The solutions are not much promising Bariatric surgery Learning how to be satisfied with sensible amounts of nutrient rich but low calorie food in this toxic environment Maybe someday a pill I would have liked coverage of exercise overall It gets very little Recommended for anyone interested in diet and nutrition
