The Diet Myth : Why America's Obsession With Weight Is Hazardous To Your Health - Paul Campos

The Diet Myth

Why America's Obsession With Weight Is Hazardous To Your Health

Sorry, the book that you are looking for is not available right now.

We did a search for other books with a similar title, and found some results for you that may be helpful.

This book cancels the myth that 'Fat' equals 'Unhealthy'. It is an essential reading for anyone concerned with losing weight or dealing with eating related concerns. A provocative, wry expose of the science, culture and politics that feed America's self-defeating war on fat and perpetuates the false equation of thinness with health.

The Diet Myth began as a cover story in The New Republic, drawing one of the largest reader responses in that magazine's history. Like Rachel Carson's Silent Spring and Eric Schlosser's Fast Food Nation,The Diet Myth is a real paradigm-busting read that challenges the conventional wisdom regarding the medical, political and cultural meaning of weight. Obesity is a major health crisis, according to our governments.

After years of scrutinising medical studies and interviewing leading doctors and scientists, Paul Campos is ready to lead the backlash against weight hysteria, proving that those extra pounds are not so bad for us after all. Paul Campos brings a rational new voice to America's weight debate.

I wanted to investigate this diet myth. There is so much information in this book that is repetitive in different forms. You keep on reading, but don't find anything they haven't said before.
Writing the information once or twice would be sufficient.
It would be much improved if it was quarter the length.

    This book cuts through the rubbish that is written to get you to try new diet this, new diet that. It brings some much-needed common sense to the problem of being overweight.
