Delores Privette Smith, MS, BSN, ADN, RN, has spent her life swinging back and forth between crash diets and binge eating. Facing heart failure and other health problems, she set out to uncover the underlying causes of disordered eating. She shares the surprising results of her research in her latest book, Toxic Hunger.
Toxic Hunger is not just another diet book. In these pages, Smith uncovers the internal and external causes of the "toxic hunger" that the overweight and obese fight daily. Diving deep into the psychology of overeating, she highlights the roles of emotion, food addiction, and dieting addiction in severe weight gain. She shines a light on the little-known ways in which malnutrition can impact and even worsen obesity. What's more, she demonstrates the complications caused by a host of factors beyond the control of any one overweight individual: manipulation, marketing, and industrial food processing all play a role in the creation of disordered eating and weight gain.
A registered nurse, Smith examines the complex web of influences that lead to disordered eating and weight gain, and she offers her readers practical suggestions to put them on the path to a healthier lifestyle.
