Abstract
This audio file is an interview on Q with author Gary Taubes about his new book, Why We Get Fat: And What To Do About It. He says exercise isn't the key to losing weight. And neither is counting calories. Taubes -- an award-winning science journalist -- says that much of the conventional wisdom, from doctors and weight-loss shows alike, is wrong. But many doctors and dietitians strenuously disagree with Taubes, saying that there is no one-size-fits-all weight solution and that to suggest it's that simple, is just plain wrong.

With a fresh, fun, and frank attitude, Nancy addresses the common, painful, and shameful "diet dramas" that most mainstream diet and nutrition books miss, including: "I think I'm healthy, but medical charts say I'm not"; "I can't afford a gym so I can't exercise properly"; and "I just want to have weight loss surgery and be done with it."

Abstract
Ellyn Satter's Secrets of Feeding a Healthy Family takes a leadership role in the grassroots movement back to the family table. More a cooking primer than a cookbook, this book encourages singles, couples, and families with children to go to the trouble of feeding themselves well. Satter uses simple, delicious recipes as a scaffolding on which to hang cooking lessons, fast tips, night-before suggestions, in-depth background information, ways to involve kids in the kitchen, and guidelines on adapting menus for young children. In chapters about eating, feeding, choosing food, cooking, planning, and shopping, the author entertainingly helps readers have fun with food while not eating unhealthily or too often. She cites current studies and makes a convincing case for lightening up on fat and sodium without endangering ourselves or our children. The book demonstrates Satter's dictum that 'your positive feelings about food and eating will do more for your health than adhering to a set of rules about what to eat and what not to eat.'
