The End of Craving with Mark Schatzker

Renee Bright

In recent years, many Americans have cut carbs and sugar, reduced fat and tried every diet. Yet millions of us still have high blood pressure, are pre-diabetic and obese. Why?

Mark Schatzker has devoted himself to trying to answer this question. In his new book, The End of Craving, he suggests that achieving good health isn’t about resisting your need to eat, but in understanding the purpose of that urge. Schatzker's journey takes him around the globe, merging science and ancient wisdom, as he works to uncover the link between good health and the joy of eating. He joins us this Friday at noon.

Airs: Dec. 3, 2021 at noon MT and Saturday, Dec. 4 at 11 a.m. MT.

Mark Schatzker’s book is The End of Craving: Recovering the Lost Wisdom of Eating Well. [Bookshop|Audible|Indiebound|Amazon]
