Author Conversation: Body of Truth – How Science, History, and Culture Drive Our Obsession with Weight


The media, pharmaceutical companies, and the medical profession have led us to create absurd and unrealistic body types for all people. All women are supposed to feel bad if they don;t look like a Victoria Secret model and men are made to feel inadequate if they don’t resemble Channing Tatum. It’s wrong. People have different body types and there aren’t absolute correlations between weight and health. Unfortunately, the more Western media to which we’re exposed, the more unhappiness prevails. Listen to an interesting conversation with the author of this interesting new book. It will change the way you think and act. It will bring sanity to moderate exercise and eating good food while enjoying life.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
