Summary
This is the story of a journalist's struggle with weight, and a look at our own culture of fat and thin. While on assignment to interview Dr. Robert Atkins, Leith realized that he could not report on diet alone; he wanted desperately to develop a deeper understanding of his relationship with food and the pathological cravings that led him (and millions of others) to become dangerously overweight. His Atkins interview led him to probe not only the link between carbohydrates and addiction, but also how ourrelationship with food has changed over the last few decades in light of economic, technological, and cultural changes in the world, as well as our cultural obsession with our bodies. Combining the science of food addiction with memoir, humor, and sociological insights, this book forces us to look at our culture of consumption in a new way.--From publisher description
