How is it that really smart people get fat, despite knowing all the health concerns and social difficulties that obesity brings?  According to Why Intelligent People Are Overweight author Headley Turk, it isn’t about intellect, it’s about addiction. 

What we eat has less to do with our intellect and more to do with the associations that we have with food.  Food feels good.  In his straight-forward approach, Turk offers readers practical advice to help change their associations with food and exercise.  Equally important includes the book’s relevant suggestions for healthy eating and increased motivation for exercise in order to help end this food addiction once and for all.
