The Psychology of Eating and Drinking This insightful and thought-provoking book explores the truth behind how and why we eat and drink what we do. Rather than promise easy answers to weight loss, this book approaches controversial food and eating issues from a new perspective–explaining the facts to promote understanding of our bodies rather than fighting them.
The only book to provide an educated reader with a broad, scientific understanding of these topics, The Psychology of Eating and Drinking explores basic eating and drinking processes, such as hunger and taste, as well as how these simple concepts influence more complex issues, such as eating disorders and cuisine. Grounded in the most up-to-date advances in scientific research on eating and drinking behaviors, its engaging style provides the most accurate scientific information available and highlights compelling real-life situations that are of interest to everyone.
