I have an extensive library of weight management advice books but this is the most logical and useful reference I have read. Following this type of advice I have successfully lost 65kg (yes, sixty five kilo) and maintained a reasonable weight for over four years. Wish I had found this book years ago!
I have read a lot of books on diet and health. I think the best of the new books questioning the cult of low fat and a lot of carbohydrate, have merit in that they help to free open minded people from the damaging results of that low fat cult and they are good background material. This book however, is the best I have ever read - about not only the above, but also a lot more. Including about how to finally gain control over a too high body weight set point that has crept up for me during my life. The book focuses on the causes of obesity and It put all the pieces I have struggled to figure out, together and (very important to me) uses good research on humans. It is thorough, and to me shows the heart, (compassion, caring, passion), of a doctor who has vision, who wants to make a difference, and I am certain, he is and he will.
After a life time of battling obesity and failing despite my best efforts, this book sheds light on how trusted nutritional advise was actually making me fat! I've already started fasting and changing diet and I'm feeling great and the weight just drops off.
Well written and succinct this book is well set out and easy to understand and implement in daily life
