Dog Ear Publishing releases “Clean Your Plate: America’s Grand Obesity Plan” by John Bressler III

Unbeknownst to the diners, their eating habits benefit a mysterious organization dedicated to making Americans fat with additives and bioengineered food.

(PRWEB) January 03, 2013 -- An imaginative young man spends much of his life eating in this new humorous novel that looks at America’s relationship with food. When he was young, breakfast featured bowls of cereal followed by pancakes covered in syrup. Lunch brought sandwiches with peanut butter and whole milk. Snacks featured homemade cookies – and more milk – and the family ate cheese-rich lasagna, garlic bread and hand-churned ice cream for dinner. And Sunday was no day of rest – all-you-can-eat brunch followed church services where his father preached. Unbeknownst to the diners, their eating habits benefit a mysterious organization dedicated to making Americans fat with additives and bioengineered food.

“Clean Your Plate: America’s Grand Obesity Plan” exposes a secret firm that began a campaign after World War II to improve the physical condition of the American male when draftees couldn’t pass requirements. Initially, Congress created a national school lunch program and the phrase “Clean your plate” entered the lexicon. As the story goes, the firm gained leaders in key government agencies like the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the American Medical Association and the Food and Drug Administration, and its new agenda was to keep finding food additives humans can’t process while negating efforts of those trying to fight obesity.

The story’s main character survives a stint in the Marines without putting on weight, but once he’s married, the weight starts to accumulate. His wife requires gallbladder surgery and, as a result, must adopt a fat-free diet. Once the couple begins eating nonmodified foods, their weight drops and their energy rises. Soon he’s started a blog that draws thousands. Unfortunately, it also catches the eye of some at the firm, and they plot to permanently eliminate this risk to their control over America’s food consumption.

Author John Bressler III grew up in Savannah, Ga., and joined the Marine Corps, where he served until honorably discharged from active duty. Bressler, who briefly owned a bar in Savannah, works in the copier business. He and his wife continue to monitor their eating and have kept the weight off.
