Health at Every Size: The Surprising Truth about Your Weight

Health at Every Size: The Surprising Truth about Your Weight Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A healthy-living book that explains the physiology of weight, this guide debunks the diet-to-lose myth by illustrating that traditional dieting activities actually activate “thrifty genes” that lead to weight gain, both by increasing hunger and triggering other mechanisms. The steps outlined in this resource stress that by giving up the weight fight and by focusing on overall wellness and fitness, the body will become healthier and more fit. Uniquely integrating physiological, psychological, and sociocultural perspectives, this authoritative reference shows how to improve health—which is ultimately the only way to achieve a balanced and optimum weight—resulting in higher self-esteem, more energy, happier living, and a healthier physique.

Synopsis:

Fat isn't the problem. Dieting is the problem. A society that rejects anyone whose body shape or size doesn’t match an impossible ideal is the problem. A medical establishment that equates "thin" with "healthy" is the problem. Health at Every Size: The Surprising Truth About Your Weight by Linda Bacon, PhD, presents a well-researched, healthy-living manual that debunks the weight myths and translates the latest science into practical advice to help readers forever end their battle with weight.
