No one wants to overeat. And certainly no one wants to overeat for years, become overweight, & end up with a high risk of diabetes or heart disease-yet two thirds of Americans do precisely that. Why does our behavior betray our best intentions to eat healthy foods in moderation? The reason is that our appetites & food choices are led astray by ancient, instinctive brain circuits that play by the rules of a survival game that no longer exists. These circuits don't care about how you look in a bathing suit next summer. Join Stephan J. Guyenet for an exploration of some of these circuits & how they conspire with our modern food environment to expand our waistlines.
