Dr. David A. Kessler, the dynamic and controversial former FDA commissioner known for his crusade against the tobacco industry, is taking on another business thatís making Americans sick: the food industry. In The End of Overeating, Dr. Kessler shows us how our brain chemistry has been hijacked by the foods we most love to eat: those that contain stimulating combinations of fat, sugar, and salt.

Drawn from the latest brain science as well as interviews with top physicians and food industry insiders, The End of Overeating exposes the food industryís aggressive marketing tactics and reveals shocking facts about how we lost control over foodóand what we can do to get it back. For the millions of people struggling with their weight as well as those of us who simply canít seem to eat our favorite foods in moderation, Dr. Kesslerís cutting-edge investigation offers valuable insights and practical answers for Americaís largest-ever public health crisis. There has never been a more thorough, compelling, or in-depth analysis of why we eat the way we do.

DAVID A. KESSLER, MD, served as commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration under presidents George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton. He is a pediatrician and has been the dean of the medical schools at Yale and the University of California, San Francisco. A graduate of Amherst College, the University of Chicago Law School, and Harvard Medical School, Dr. Kessler is the father of two and lives with his wife in California.
