** Fat Nation by Jonathan Engel

Fat Nation: A History of Obesity in America recounts the rise of obesity since after WWII, relating it to city planning, the availability of fast food and processed food, and the disappearance of family meals. The author is a professor of health policy so is able to speak calmly about the topic, and he tries, bravely, to suggest some solutions. Will we all start eating spinach and walk everywhere?
