Read Ó PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook É Susan Yager The Hundred Year Diet Read & Download ☆ 0 A lively cultural history of the American weight loss industry that explores the origins of our obsession with dietingAs a nation battling an obesity epidemic we spend than 35 billion annually on diets and diet regimens Our weight is making us sick unhappy and bigger than ever and we are willing to hand over our hard earned money to fix the problem But most people don’t know that the diet industry started cashing. I was hoping for a fun romp through the crazy fad diets of the last several hundred years This exists for the first couple of chapters but it really uite short on each diet Nevertheless this part is pretty interesting and a good discussion of dieting culture most Americans truly had no clue how to eat anyAnd then a rant about obesity in America with no reference to the fact that it could be related to that one extremely insightful uote Or to the fact that yoyo dieting leaves most people heavier than they started which Yager even discusses but does not in anyway connect to her hundred page rant about obesity By the way in case you re living on the moon obesity is a problem in America and this is somehow thought to be novel enough to be worth several chaptersAnd then I got even frustrated as the last three chapters where Yager is completely credulous about organic food and says crazy stuff like organic food is inherently healthier eating organic will make Americans conscious about their food choices and that modern Americans don t diet any and that the obesity problem is going to be solved as Americans choose to eat organic Seriously talk about living on the moon or at least in her non food desert upper middle class Whole Foods going bubbleAnd then she hit a nerve when she tied in the hemolytic uremic syndrome outbreak of 2009 into Americans not being aware enough of food and being too willing to buy cheap food I personally took care of several patients during the outbreak and to blame their illness on their smart caring insightful and upper middle class parents who apparently are at fault for buying hamburger meat really rankled

The Hundred Year Diet

Read Ó PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook É Susan Yager The Hundred Year Diet Read & Download ☆ 0 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. Synopsis A nonfiction book that looks at how American s have been looking at weight and diets historically with the major focus on views since World War IMy rating45Overall I enjoyed this book and found it insightful and interesting The book was approximately 250 pages and there were times it became repetitive or I was ready for the topic to move forward before it did I think this is something I find often occurs in nonfiction presumably because an author is trying to reiterate their points The repetition and occasional dragging of the book didn t significantly hinder my enjoyment This book looks at the primary diets we use today and their origins Not surprisingly most of the diets in use are diets that were created long ago They are re branded repackaged and tweaked however they are or less the same Rest assured that all diets work to a degree assuming you can follow them Sadly for the vast majority of people making a dietary lifestyle change to maintain weightless over the lifespan proves too great a sacrifice While many people enter restrictive diets with enthusiasm most realize after a time that they can t comply with harsh restrictions but that those restrictions are reuired to lose and maintain weight lossThis book looks at trends statistics and origins of diets I think it is eye opening and worth the read for anyone struggling with their weight though they may be disheartened to learn that the author doesn t have a concrete answer on the best diet for weight loss While there is no magic reveal about the best diet for weight loss I believe that reading this book will make dieters knowledgeable consumers which is valuable If you are planning to diet at some point in your life I recommend reading this book The insights given are valuable even if the answer to the diet uestion remains elusive

Goodreads win Looks like it will be an interesting read The Hundred Year Diet American s Voracious Appetite for Losing Weight turned out to be pretty good I enjoyed the reading first half of the book which took you through a few decades of dieting regimens that sounds absolutely ridiculous now I loved learning something new about America s dieting history Crazy stuff folks used to do to reduce The last few chapters were just okay Nothing jumped out at me that I didn t already know There were opportunities to expand and develop these ideas further but it sort of glossed over each point I agree with another reviewer comments in that the last part of the book sounded rushed to finish I received a copy of the unedited pre released version of this book through First reads which unfortunately made it difficult to get through I couldn t stop focusing on all the sentence errors Not that I m a great writer or anything but it was distracting I m hoping the edited version was cleaner
