About this product
- DescriptionOvereating and obesity are on the rise. Despite public health warnings, availability of diet books and programs, and the stigma associated with obesity, many people find it difficult to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight. While there are many books on the topic of caloric or need-based eating, obesity and overeating can also result from eating that is t driven by hunger. Recent research found that excess food intake is largely driven by the palatability of food and the pleasure derived from eating. Hedonic Eating: How the Pleasure of Food Affects Our Brain and Behavior will appeal to scientists, medical doctors, psychologists, counselors and students taking specialized courses that cover appetite. It will also appeal to the general public intersted in learning more about topics, including brain reward-related mechanisms associated with food intake, eating behaviors resulting from these changes in the brain, obesity, and overeating, and science-based approaches to combat the changing landscape of our food environment.
