Appetite for Weight Loss

Author Susan Yager dishes the skinny on America’s obsession with food and dieting.

Finding a weight-loss program that promises to melt the pounds away is as easy as super-sizing a fast food meal. But our fascination with staying slim began long before our waistlines started expanding.

Susan Yager’s new book, The Hundred Year Diet explores why most Americans seem more concerned with losing weight than eating well. Listen as she details the cultural, economic and scientific roots of a national eating disorder.
