Author and CEO Jack Bobo is a food psychology expert with over 20 years advising four U. S. Secretaries of State on food and agriculture. He’s here to personally guide you on smarter food choices and improving your quality of life.

Elusive healthy lifestyle. We have access to more nutrition facts and diet plans now than ever before. Consumers have never known more about nutrition and yet, have never been more overweight. For most Americans, maintaining a balanced diet is more difficult than doing their taxes. What are we doing wrong?

Learn to eat better. Jack Bobo reveals how the psychology of food has been invisibly controlling us all along, in the grocery aisles, at restaurants, in front of the refrigerator, and in every other place we make crucial food choices. Behavioral science is changing the way we think about food and showing us how to develop healthy meal plans and deliver more balanced diets.

Apply behavioral science to your diet plan. A balanced diet creates a healthy lifestyle routine and better quality of life. You can move beyond fad diets, pop science, and calls for ever greater willpower. Explore the deeper causes of hidden influences and mental shortcuts our minds use to process information and how they often prevent us from healthy eating habits.

Why Smart People Make Bad Food Choices helps you:

  • Understand the psychology behind hidden influences
  • Make better decisions that lead toward a healthy diet
  • Fear less and enjoy more the food you eat
  • Become a positive force for the diets of those around you

Now from the two-time Emmy winner David Page comes the book Food Americana, an entertaining mix of food culture, pop culture, nostalgia, and everything new on the American plate.

Food Americana, engaging, insightful, and often humorous. The inside story of how Americans have formed a national cuisine from a world of flavors.

The Food Revolution

By

The Saving Power of the Plant-Based Diet

“If every patient in every doctor's office read this book, it would revolutionize the health of America.” —Neal Barnard, MD, president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine

#1 Bestseller in Agriculture & Food Policy

A book from the over-one-million-copies-sold author who made popular the connections between diet, physical health, animal cruelty, and environmentalism.

A revolution in food-politics. When John Robbins released an early version of this book in 1987, he took the first steps in the food revolution. His insight into the harm caused by America’s eating habits was a wake-up call for many.

Making conscious food choices. It is obvious to us that what we eat affects our bodies, but what we may not realize is that what we eat also affects our world. In fact, most of the foods that are bad for us (think genetically modified products) also negatively impact our environment. By approaching our eating habits with intentionality, we benefit our own health and that of the world we live in.

The value of a plant-based diet. Arguments for a plant-based diet are compelling and backed by over 20 years of work by Robbins focused on the subject of conscious eating. Exposing the dangers in our factory farming system, Robbins makes a definitive case for solely plant-based eating. This timely read on healthy eating will enlighten those curious about plant-based diets and fortify the mindsets of the already converted.

Read The Food Revolution and discover:

  • The negative effects of your current eating habits
  • A powerful case for plant-based eating
  • Wisdom from one of the most frequently cited books of the food-politics revolution

If you have read books such as We are the Weather, How Not to Die, 31-Day Food Revolution, or Fast Food Genocide, then The Food Revolution is a must read!
