But she often wondered: what foods could prevent these diseases? Then while working as a medical volunteer in the Amazon, she realized why Angela, one of her patients back in California, felt better every time she returned from visiting her tiny home village.</p><div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Amy Ahlberg </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-subtitle"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> An interview with Daphne Miller, M.D. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-standard"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_standard" width="310" height="310" alt="" src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/daphne_miller_310_0.jpg?1337347665" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-publication"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> May/June 2009 </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-related1"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-relatedtitle1"> <div class="field-label">Related Content Title 1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> More from EatingWell: </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-relatedlinks1"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/diet_health/weight_loss_diet_plans/what_is_the_paleo_diet">What Is the Paleo Diet?</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/nutrition_health/nutrition_news_information/change_the_way_you_think_about_food">Change the Way You Think About Food</a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/nutrition_health/nutrition_news_information/mediterranean_diet_the_worlds_healthiest_diet">Mediterranean Diet: The World&#039;s Healthiest Diet?</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/recipes_from_the_mediterranean_diet">Recipes from the Mediterranean Diet </a> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> http://www.eatingwell.com/diet_health/nutrition_news_information/how_traditional_diets_can_help_prevent_modern_diseases#comments Amy Ahlberg May/June 2009 Fri, 18 May 2012 13:29:12 +0000 Penelope Wall 91986 at http://www.eatingwell.com How can public policy make a difference? http://www.eatingwell.com/how_can_public_policy_make_a_difference <div class="field field-type-text field-field-question"> <div class="field-label">Question:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>How can public policy make a difference?</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-answer"> <div class="field-label">Answer:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Restaurants should list the calorie counts of all foods they serve. Food products should convey prominently on their labels the ­percentage of added sugars, refined carbohydrates and fats they contain. People also need to hear repeatedly that selling, serving and eating food layered and loaded with sugar, fat and salt has unhealthy consequences. And food marketing should be monitored and exposed.</p> </div> </div> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/how_can_public_policy_make_a_difference#comments Amy Ahlberg July/August 2009 David A.

Now I look at that huge plate of fries and say, “I don’t want that.” Sure, it will taste good, but in 20 minutes I’m going to feel lousy. For me, food has to be rewarding, it has to be pleasureable. But it also has to be nutritious, it has to satiate. It can’t just be fat on sugar on fat—that’s stimulating, but isn’t going to satiate.</p> </div> </div> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/can_you_give_a_personal_example#comments Amy Ahlberg July/August 2009 David A.

Look at the public-health success with tobacco. We didn’t change the product. But we changed how people perceive it. Now people look at tobacco and say, “That’s really disgusting.” Tobacco is easy because you can live without it, but you can’t live without food. So you have to cool down the stimulus. You have to retrain yourself to respond to food differently.</p> </div> </div> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/how_can_we_break_this_cycle#comments Amy Ahlberg July/August 2009 David A.

They have fat, sugar and salt, which are highly stimulating. They condition us so that even the sights and smells associated with them activate your brain [in ways that make you want food]. In controlled individuals the brain activity stops when they start ingesting the food, but in some people it doesn’t shut off when the food is gone.</p> </div> </div> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/what_contributes_to_americans_overeating#comments Amy Ahlberg July/August 2009 David A.

Kessler, M.D., wanted to know why chocolate chip cookies had such power over him, why he ate when he wasn’t hungry—and what he could do about it. So seven years ago the physician and former FDA commissioner set out to discover what drives us to eat too much. He talked to neurobiologists, psychologists and food-industry insiders. In a new book, The End of Overeating (Rodale), Kessler shares what he found.</p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-standard"> <div class="field-label">Standard Image:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_standard" width="310" height="310" alt="" src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/david_kessler_310.jpg?1250791080" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-q-and-a"> <div class="field-label">Q &amp; A:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/what_contributes_to_americans_overeating">What contributes to Americans’ overeating?</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/how_can_we_break_this_cycle">How can we break this cycle?</a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/can_you_give_a_personal_example">Can you give a personal example?</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/how_can_public_policy_make_a_difference">How can public policy make a difference?</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-related-group-1"><legend>Related Content Group 1</legend><div class="field field-type-text field-field-relatedtitle1"> <div class="field-label">Related Content Title 1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Related Articles </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-relatedlinks1"> <div class="field-label">Related Links 1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/food_news_origins/food_news/fight_fat_with_a_soft_drink_tax">Fight Fat with a Soft-Drink Tax?</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/food_news_origins/food_news/the_fast_food_ban">The Fast Food Ban</a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/nutrition_health/healthy_kids_diet_center">Healthy Kids Diet Center</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/food_news_origins/food_news/the_future_of_food_predictions_from_michael_pollan">The Future of Food: Predictions from Michael Pollan</a> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> http://www.eatingwell.com/food_news_origins/food_news/a_nation_addicted_to_food#comments Amy Ahlberg July/August 2009 David A.
