Welcome to season 4 of the podcast. I'm delighted to be back after a short break.
What a guest to land to begin this new season. Extremely thankful I was able to chat with food journalist and author, Mark Schatzker about his new book, The End of Craving: Recovering the Lost Wisdom of Eating Well.
Leaning on research from the fields of food science, psychology, neuroscience, and behavioral economics (he references work from Amos Tversky and Daniel Kahneman, two of my personal faves), Mark weaves a masterful story that questions our decades long struggles with hedonic eating and diet. He urges one to rethink our lifestyle eating choices by aligning these with science-based facts. His book is illuminating, insightful, brilliantly written and compassionate. I read it in 30 hours and loved every bit.
We run through his book in detail as Mark gives a thorough and candid interview. He's provocative, yet optimistic in his approach. I no doubt believe you'll come away with a better sense of what food should mean to you and why you should eat well.
Do buy this book. You won't regret it.
