The End of Overeating (Taking Control of the Insatiable American Appetite) by David Kessler, MD was worth reading to see how the food industry works to keep us craving certain foods (sugar + salt + fat + artificial flavor enhancers) and overeating. If nothing else, it made me never want to eat at chain restaurants again.

YOU HAVE GRABBED MY ATTENTION Stephen_Nanny! :D Outside the box is always a good idea.

I believe that Imagination is stronger than Knowledge.
That Myth is more potent than History. That Dreams are more powerful than Facts. That Laughter is the only cure for Grief. And I believe that Love is stronger than Death.

OK this suggestion is WAY outside the box, but...

"Guns, Germs and Steel"...I learned more about health, disease, nutrition and human-kind's history with food than almost any other book.

If you bring forth that which is within you, that which is within you will save you. If you do not bring forth that which is within you, that which you do not bring forth will destroy you.

There are so many books out there, some claim total opposite of the others, with references to scientific articles, etc... I no longer wish to read any more, because I feel that I too can write my own diet book!

The reason for all this is human organism is able to survive under a wide variety of conditions. It can do well on many types of diets, especially when one considers losing fat, which seems to be what matters for most people.

One needs further constraints to eliminate competing ideas, like sustainability over the long term of the diets or longevity that results.
