Description

This volume analyzes the broad psychological and biological issues concerning eating and exercise by focusing on the crucial nexus of mood. The author discusses such topics as mood-controlled eating, the influence of mood on exercise, and the influence of exercise on mood, in addition to providing a clear explanation of basic physiological concepts and their relationship to mood. The book should be useful to readers who want to recognize, anticipate, and counteract negative moods, as well as to those who want a practical guide to the ways in which eating and exercise patterns may be integrated with everyday life.
