I’ve been hearing so much about this book that I’ve decided to read it. I will post a review later this week. It’s a quick read – I’m done the first 2 sections already, but I have a busy week ahead so probably won’t get to the review until the weekend.
Something I’ve noticed already: In the States it’s called The End of Overeating: Taking Control of the Insatiable American Appetite, however here in Canada it’s: The End of Overeating: Taking Control of the Insatiable North American Appetite. Seriously America? Anyway, for those Canadian’s wondering if it’s just a book focused soley on American statistics, it’s not (so far). He references Canadian statistics and studies as well, at least in the Canadian edition; and although we’re better off in terms of the obesity epidemic taking hold of the States…it’s not by much.
Anyone read the Globe and Mail article from September? Nearly three quarters of Ontario adults are overweight or obese! I’d say that’s probably also the case for provinces like BC, Alberta, & Quebec. Although I, as a resident of Quebec, often wonder what the stats are here. We are much more influenced by European and specifically French approaches to food and in the types of food we eat, but I’m not convinced that we’ve somehow managed to escape the North Americanisation of our food either.
