Overview

"Obesity kills 300,000 people per year" IS A BIG FAT LIE!

Glenn Gaesser, an exercise physiologist, challenges the conventional wisdom that being "overweight" is dangerous. This is a meticulously-researched, clearly-written book and is crucial reading for anyone who wants to take concrete steps towards improving their health—no matter what their size.

Here are well-document facts that:

  • People can be fit and fat.
  • Thinner is not necessarily healthier.
  • Some body fat protects you from heart disease.
  • Dieting can cause weight gain.

"Finally, truth and justice for the fat person. People...cannot all fit some insurance chart. This book should be required reading before going on a diet." —Charles Van Dyke, Chairman of the Board, National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance

"A fascinating, witty, informative collage on one of the most bewildering contemporary controversies in the health field." —Rubin Andres, M.D., Clinical Director, National Institute on Aging
