They address the biological, psychological, and social processes underlying weight regulation and eating behavior, including neural, hormonal, and genetic influences and the role of developmental and family factors, dieting, and body image problems; various eating disorders, including anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder, and night eating syndrome, and their clinical characteristics, epidemiology and etiology, treatment, and prevention; and the epidemiology and etiology, clinical characteristics, treatment, prevention, and policy related to obesity. Revised and updated, this edition has new chapters; more on obesity prevention and policy; and new topics like epigenetics, body weight and neurocognitive function, stress and emotion regulation, the gut microbiome, and surgical interventions for obesity.
