    The End of Overeatinguncovers the shocking facts about how we lost control over our eating habits - and how we can get it back. Dr. Kessler presents groundbreaking research, along with what is sure to be a controversial view inside the industry that continues to feed a nation of overeaters - from popular brand manufacturers to advertisers, chain restaurants, and fast-food franchises.

    "Careful Listening to This One if You Are Dieting"
    Overall

    I listened to just the beginning of this book, then deleted it from my computer because while listening to it I seemed to go into one of the states that the author describes and ended up binge eating. Analyzing that binge behavior the next day made me think that it was because it caused me to think about all the high sugar and high fat foods over and over and made me vulnerable to craving them. Normally I focus on the healthy foods that are on my food plan for the day and don't think about things I don't eat anymore, such as french fries.

    The crazy thing is that I was listening to the book because I've been doing great dieting (have lost over 100 pounds in the past two years and have only binged 4 times in the past 200 days, including the binge after listening to the start of this book). I was looking for some motivating material to listen to while I work on losing the last 20-25 pounds I have to go. Ugh... Be careful with this book if you are dieting!

    Story
    (228)

    When she was 18 years old, Carolyn Jessop was coerced into an arranged marriage with a total stranger - a man 32 years her senior. Merril Jessop already had three wives. But arranged plural marriages were an integral part of Carolyn's heritage: She was born into and raised in the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS), the radical offshoot of the Mormon Church.

    "I highly recommend this book."
    Overall

    Carolyn Jessop's life story is extraordinary. I hope that she writes a follow up. The narrator's reading is outstanding. I highly recommend this book.
