The book is divided in three parts. In the first one it explains the way the brain works when regulating the whole body and, more in detail, in the regulation of the appetite and satiation sensations, as well as the pleasure sensations we obtain when eating certain foods.
In the second part, it talks about the problems that the brain faces to control what to eat and when to eat, as well as the guilty feelings that we have with certain eating behaviors that we cannot control. One of the main problems is based on hormonal disorders of the appetite and satiation control system, which can become chronic and they seem to be provoked by inadequate diet and eating habits.
In the third and last part, the book gives solutions and alternatives to try to fix the problems mentioned in the previous part so that the brain disorders improve. To do this, it gives you some guidelines you can follow, some easier and more definite than others. It also deals with possible solutions to the question of food addiction. Finally, it gives three keys that can motivate you to try to fix the mentioned disorders, so that you take care of the solution to the problem and you can face it with a clear resolution that will drive you to make it once you understand better what is going on.
Especially interesting is a section on how external factors such as aggresive marketing by the food industry, alongside physiological anomalies, affect our ability to choose wisely when deciding what and when to eat. Although primarily aimed at people directly affected by obesity either at a personal or professional level, there are many surprising aspects of how the brain affects body funtions which are of interest generally, and explained in a way which any informed reader will understand.
This book offers a new perspective of obesity, one of the most important preventable cause of death worldwide.
Luis Jiménez, chemist and nutrition expert, tells us rigorously the latest research on Neuroscience, Endocrinology, Psychology and obesity-related. The book is very well written and all conclusions are firmly based on scientific data and research.
I recommend it for every person interested in Nutrition who want to read something different. A new point of view. Don't miss out.
