THE WEIGHT OF THE NATION Surprising Lessons about Diets, Food, and Fat from the Extraordinary Series from HBO Documentary Films

by | Read by Bernadette Dunne

Contemporary Culture • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

This book version of a television series explains how corporations and government policy have as much to do with our country’s weight problem as people’s self-control issues with eating and exercising. Readily available processed foods and cultural messages conspire with hardwired sweet preferences to stack the odds against anyone trying to lose weight. Bernadette Dunne’s silky smooth performance makes hearing this information thoroughly understandable and enjoyable. Her flawless voice and seamless phrasing communicate satisfying gravitas. This wonderful production is more an enlightening documentary than a self-help program that rouses the spirit, but in its own measured way it promotes consideration of some worthwhile fitness initiatives.
