Salt Sugar Fat: Speaker Michael Moss On Processed Food & the Obesity Epidemic
In Salt Sugar Fat: How The Food Giants Hooked Us, Moss presents eye-opening research that describes how major food manufacturers manipulate these key ingredients to make us crave their products. However, his book isn't a tirade against corporations. Instead, he presents an objective analysis to educate audiences about the food on their plates and empower them to take control of what they eat. Given his journalism background (writing for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, New York Newsday, and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution), it's clear where Moss developed his knack for objective reporting—and his ability to present the facts without undue bias has garnered praise in reviews of his work.
In his talks, Moss expands on the research from the book and provides numerous solutions to eating smarter. As he shared with the Lavin Agency, kicking your processed food addiction starts at the grocery store. Stick to the perimeter of the store where the fresh foods are stocked, watch out for the eye-level sweets that taunt you in the center aisles, and stick to a list to avoid impulse buys. A crucial voice in the national conversation on food, Moss offers audiences an eye-opening window on the food they eat—and why they should care.
