Guest: Hilary Seligman, associate professor at the University of California San Francisco To be food insecure means that you don't have enough money afford enough nutritious food for a healthy lifestyle. One in 7 Americans live in a food insecure household. But that does not mean that one in seven Americans are perpetually hungry or losing weight. In fact, the irony of food insecurity in America is that it has a tendency to lead-in many cases-to obesity. Dr. Hilary Seligman calls this the "obesity-hunger paradox."
