Hi Dr. Kaplan, Thanks to your reply to my comment. I appreciate your recognition of the injustice of food deserts. I beg to differ on the idea that there is no evidence of insufficient caloric intake in North America. According to the Alliance for Eating Disorder Awareness, 1 in 5 women struggle with disordered eating or eating disorders. 46 percent of 9-11 year olds and 82 percent of their families report being on diets, and over 30 million Americans have been diagnosed with an eating disorder. To me it is very clear that disordered eating, which often involves caloric restriction/insufficient caloric intake, is a major issue in the US, and messages that promote rigid food rules and overly simplistic categorization of food as either “healthy” or “unhealthy” absolutely contribute to this.
