This home-study course outlines the various factors that make foods palatable. It provides evidence that the "hyperpalatability" of our current food supply is undermining our normal satiety signals, motivating the drive to eat even when there is no physiologic need for food. This course presents evidence that repeated exposure to high quantities of palatable foods (i.e., those high in sugar, fat and salt) can alter the brain in ways similar to drugs of abuse, essentially "rewiring" the brain to promote compulsive eating and loss of control over food.

It is estimated that 1.4 billion adults—one in three across the globe—are overweight. Registered dietitian and health writer Clare Fleishman explores surprising new suspects contributing to our planet’s expanding girth, including air conditioning, drugs, pollution, and others which get little notice as lack of will power shoulders the blame. This important work examines how we live in a new century and why obesity has become a major killer from the American Midwest to the cities of Europe and across the deserts of Africa.

Irritating the Ones You Love explores how “unconscious” reasons control so much of our choices and behavior in relationships—the hidden reasons we are drawn to particular partners, and how, unknowingly, the past affects our reactions in present situations. This book provides tools to help readers uncover the hidden influences on them so that they can choose partners for the “right” reasons, grow as human beings, stop making the same mistakes when issues arise with their partner, and make their relationships more intimate and happy.

Advancements in medical technology are extending our lives, and we are aging more diversely than ever. Yet, many of us endure or will endure chronic diseases. This course explains in detail how to relate to those in the medical profession, how to advocate for better patient care, as well as what to say and not say to someone who is ill. We’ll look specifically at how to help someone who is in pain, and how to intervene with those that are non-adherent with medical advice. This course will also help caretakers identify if they are “caring too much,” with guidance regarding how to set boundaries.
