Guests:

Greg Critser, freelance journalist and author of "Fat Land: How Americans Became the Fattest People in the World"

Dr. Eloisa Gonzalez, Director of Physical Activity Program, Department of Health Services of Los Angeles County

Paul Campos, Professor of Law at the University of Colorado and Author of the forthcoming book "The Last American Diet"
