About Kima Cargill

I am a professor of clinical psychology at the University of Washington-Tacoma. My research examines how overeating is influenced by living in an affluent culture focused on consuming. I view appetite not only as biological drive, but as part of a broader desire to consume material goods, luxury experiences, food, medications and alcohol. My forthcoming book The Psychology of Overeating: Food and the Culture of Consumerism (Bloomsbury, 2015) argues that overeating is the logical outcome of such insatiable consumerism.
