You have learned how advertisements are designed to cause us to desire fat and sugar, which can lead to overconsumption. In this writing assignment, you will further analyze the brain’s role in overeating and why some of us are more likely to give into these cravings than others.

Instructions to Learners
In your essay, please address the following questions:
What is the brain’s role in overeating?
Using at least two of the listed readings in the module from this week, describe what happens in our brains to cause us to overeat, especially food high in fat and sugar.
Why are some of us more likely to overeat than others?
How do food advertisers capitalize on our brains’ responses to food?
Your essay will be evaluated in terms of how thoroughly you: answer the questions above; use resources to document your main points, and properly cite referenced work. Your essay should address all of the questions above and should consist of approximately 500 words of text (approximately 2 pages of double-spaced and 12 point font of text). Be sure to include specific examples and references from this week’s readings and any additional references you would like to include. Use in-text citations and a reference list that will make up an additional page.
To successfully complete M3.4 Evaluate, you will need to organize your responses to the questions and then craft a formatted essay that includes each of the following:
A title page.
A well-developed introductory paragraph explaining the purpose of the essay and briefly referencing some of the main points/contentions offered in the essay.
The body of the essay should consist of your effort to best answer the primary questions from the assignment prompt and should consist of approximately 500 words of text (approximately 2 pages of double-spaced and 12 point font of text). Though the method by which this is done is largely up to you, it is essential that the responses to the questions in the prompt be based upon scholarly readings and should remain at all times defensible (in an academic sense). You have a great deal of information to draw from in creating your essay, including the assigned readings and hyperlinked sources in the Module Notes. As is the case with every assignment in SOC221, presenting any unsubstantiated, illogical, or indefensible position will have an adverse effect on the final grade. Please direct any questions regarding these expectations to the instructor.
A concise concluding paragraph that briefly restates both the purpose of the essay as well as some of the primary arguments offered by you, the essay’s author. Be sure the concluding paragraph does not introduce new information.
A list of all sources consulted the preparation of the essay. The essay should be formatted according to APA-style documentation. (Links to an external site.) This includes the format of the list of references.
M3.4 Evaluate is due at the end of Module 3 by Sunday at 11:59 PM EST.
