Calories — too few or too many — are the source of health problems affecting billions of people in today's globalized world. In Why Calories Count ($29.95), Marion Nestle and Malden Nesheim explain what calories are and how they work, both biologically and politically. The authors also offer some candid advice: Get organized. Eat less. Eat better. Get political.
Marion Nestle and Malden Nesheim will be in conversation with Clark Wolf.
