"When it comes down to it, our hardwiring, our evolutionary biology that determines our survival and our energy balance, it overrides our… will in many cases, and obesity is a perfect example of that because when people get in front of a highly-palatable food environment, the brain sends the strongest signals it has for us to quickly and impulsively to eat that highly-palatable food" notes Elissa Epel from the Center for Obesity Assessment, Study and Treatment, University of California, San Francisco in the 7-part video series called “The Skinny on Obesity” (Episode 7).
Society must set policies
Public policies are necessary to solve the obesity problems
“So, I think that part of the solution is that we have to realize that it’s not up to the individual, it is up to us as a society, and we absolutely need food policy changes.
“The economics of food determine how fat [we] are.”
