The Food Revolution

The tenth anniversary edition of an essential text on food politics: “Well researched and lucidly written . . . This book is sure to spark discussion” (Publishers Weekly).

    The philosopher Nietzsche said it well: “He who will, the fates lead; he who won't, they drag.”

    As well, the word diet reminds me how cruel our society can be to people, particularly females, whose bodies don't fit the cultural ideal.
    We are deluged with messages on TV, in movies, magazines, and in all kinds of advertisements, telling us that in order to be attractive and be loved, a woman has to be thin. This is a great way to make women dissatisfied with themselves. If you wanted to produce negative body images and eating disorders, could you think of a better way than to create a show like BayWatch? How many girls and women can compare themselves to this cultural beauty standard and feel good about themselves and their bodies? How many are that thin? It enrages me that our media makes many girls and women feel like the most important thing in life is the size bathing suit they wear.

    many of us would like to eat our bacon and eggs for breakfast, and then, if need be, take a cholesterol-lowering pill to lessen our risk of heart disease. We don't want to change our lifestyles. We don't want to question what we eat.
