New book helps end overeating? I’ll take two.

Like Dr. Kessler, I’m constantly trying to keep my sugar habit in check. Here’s the whole story about his book:

Addicted to Fat, Sugar? Retrain Your Brain, by Laura Neergaard, Associated Press

And a few of my favorite quotes from the article:

“In a book being published next week, the former Food and Drug Administration chief brings to consumers the disturbing conclusion of numerous brain studies: Some people really do have a harder time resisting ‘bad’ foods.”

“The food industry has figured out what works. They know what drives people to keep on eating,” Kessler says. “It’s the next great public-health campaign, of changing how we view food, and the food industry has to be part of it.”
