Blundell, John E. & King, Neil A. (1996) Overeating as a clue to weight gain: behavioural and physiological interactions in the control of food intake. In The Origins and Consequences of Obesity. John Wiley & Sons, Ltd, Chichester, pp. 138-158.
It has been estimated that 25-50% of people in most affluent societies are either obese or overweight. These disorders are the result of an imbalance between calorific intake and energy expenditure over a prolonged time period. These types of disorders are among the most common health problems in industrialized societies. Addressing these issues and offering new strategies, this thorough new study draws together contributions from interdisciplinary and international group of specialists, includes recent research on genetic influences, features discussions of epidemiological studies and covers both biological and social aspects of obesity.
