Reseña del editor:

What's the truth about being overweight? In the first book based on a systematic review of thousands of scientific studies and interviews with dozens of health experts, author Michael Fumento takes a lively scalpel to a major social and medical problem and the misinformation in which it is steeped. He decided to use his experience as a medical journalist and researcher to learn about fat and weight loss. Along the way he also found that the tens of billions of dollars that the diet and health industries reap annually from 'treating' the obese result in many products, programs, and books that are often far worse than useless. Determined to share the information that transformed his life, he explodes such popular myths as the 'setpoint theory' and the '"low-metabolism' excuse as well as 'fat acceptance' rhetoric. He devastates the billion-dollar low-fat-food fib, showing how the latest non-fat and low-fat food creations actually contribute to making us fatter. He offers solid advice to dieters and provides concrete solutions to the dieting dilemma, all the while exploring the roles of alcohol, television, serving sizes, the sugar industry, and food as entertainment in fostering obesity.
