Book About Junk-Food Addictions Released in Paperback

Author Neal Barnard, M.D., explains biochemical basis of some food cravings

In a series of public talks in eight major cities, nutrition expert Neal Barnard, M.D., will explain why so many Americans are hooked on junk food. Dr. Barnard, who was recently featured in “Super Size Me,” the hit documentary about a man who ate nothing but McDonald’s for 30 days, will offer new information about how certain foods can actually be physically addictive. The lectures are based on Dr. Barnard’s latest book, Breaking the Food Seduction, which is just about to be released in paperback.

BOOK DETAILS: Breaking the Food Seduction: The Hidden Reasons Behind Food Cravings and Seven Steps to End Them Naturally by Neal Barnard, M.D., is published by St. Martin’s Press. The book includes dozens of gourmet vegetarian recipes by cookbook author Joanne Stepaniak.

AUTHOR DETAILS: Neal Barnard, M.D., is a nutrition researcher and adjunct associate professor of medicine at George Washington University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C. He is also the president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and the author of seven books on diet and health, including Foods that Fight Pain and Food for Life. His most current nutrition research is being funded by the National Institutes of Health.

Founded in 1985, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is a nonprofit health organization that promotes preventive medicine, conducts clinical research, and encourages higher standards for ethics and effectiveness in research.
