"Susan Yager has given us a delightful breeze through a century of American dietary prescriptions, from Dr. Kellogg to Michael Pollan. What to Do? We still haven't figured out how to keep our food appetites to reasonable limits."

---Marion Nestle, professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health at New York Universtiy and author of What to Eat

"By dissecting the aesthetic, moral, and commercial basis of our obsessions with eating, The Hundred Year Diet illuminates the path to a healthier, and saner, food future."

---Brian Halweil, author of Eat Here and publisher of Edible Manhattan, Edible Brooklyn, and Edible East End

"It is difficult for many Americans to recognize simple, good food anymore---let alone appreciate it, We are confused. We flit from one loopy, illogical diet to the next. We feel guilty; we binge and purge. And we've become just about the fattest people on earth.

The purpose of this book is not to explore every weight-loss method devised in the last 100 years, which would be repetitive and probably take at least another century to compile. Instead, it will concentrate on the most influential people, products, companies, and plans that circumvented what should have been a simple and easy gift in a country where food is mercifully plentiful and varied---and has the capacity to nourish its citizens safely and well."---From The Hundred Year Diet
