I hope you are enjoying the new month of August and are having a healthy summer.

I would love to share one of my favorite books with you that gets to the fascinating root of why we overeat (great for vacations or poolside reading).

I mean, have you ever wondered why it feels like sometimes, we are just overeating machines?

-- Eating way past the point of being full?

-- Eating foods we know make us overweight and even sick?

In this episode of Thin Thinking, I review and dive into Dr. David Kessler's groundbreaking book, The End of Overeating: Taking Control of the Insatiable American Appetite.

Learn how the food industry has hijacked our appetites and this is one summer read that you won't want to put down.

In This Episode, You’ll Also Learn…

  • How food manufacturers create products that stimulate our appetites and set us in a cycle of desire and consumption that leads to overeating
  • How the reward center of our brain overrides our system of homeostasis in the body
  • What is the four-part process of reversing and intercepting the habit of overeating caused by the highly palatable food brought by the food industry according to Dr. Kessler
