Summary
"Fat Land highlights the groundbreaking research that implicates cheap fats and sugars as the alarming new metabolic factors making our calories stick, and shows how and why children are too often the chief metabolic victims of such foods. No one else writing on obesity in America takes as hard a line as Critser on the institutionalized lies we've been telling ourselves about how much we can eat and how little we can exercise. His expose of the Los Angeles schools' opening of the nutritional floodgates in the lunchroom and his examination of the political and cultural forces that have set the bar on American fitness low, and then lower, are both discerning reporting and impassioned wake-up calls." "Disarmingly funny, Fat Land leaves no diet books - including Dr. Atkins's - unturned. Fashions, both leisure and street, and American-style religion are subject to Critser's gimlet eye as well. Memorably, Fat Land takes on baby-boomer parenting shibboleths - that young children won't eat past the point of being full and that the dinner table isn't the place to talk about food rules - and gives advice many families will use to lose."--BOOK JACKET
