Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Aronne (director, Comprehensive Weight Control Program, New York-Presbyterian Hosp./Weill Cornell Medical Ctr.; Weigh Less, Live Longer) and Bowman (coauthor, The 90-Second Fitness Solution) focus on the biological and physiological cues and switches that react on a genetic level to prohibit weight loss. Aronne describes a low-glycemic plan of eating in order to help adjust the patient's "fullness gauge," thus helping the body to move toward releasing its excess weight. He offers makeover tips for breakfasts, lunches, snacks, dinners, beverages, and exercise. Tables of the glycemic levels of popular foods and a chapter of recipes help readers apply the concepts of the food plan more effectively. In a feature that's unique to this book, Aronne also discusses drugs, weight-loss surgery, and other techniques for those who cannot lose weight even when successfully following this plan. Aronne's encouraging, medically based text will be popular with individuals seeking weight-loss techniques for stubborn extra weight. Recommended for public libraries.

From the Publisher
“I believe Dr. Aronne has pioneered a new approach to weight loss of obesity. His multi-disciplinary methods remove the guilt and give control back to the patient. In my own case, I no longer live day to day dieting. Food is no longer something to fear; it’s something I enjoy when I am hungry. I have learned to control my hunger using the many tools he has given me. It took twenty-five years to find Dr. Aronne.” —Patricia Wexler, M.D.

“I’ve known Dr. Lou Aronne for more than fifteen years. Before we met, I was eating pork chops and candy for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. No joke. (I love candy.) Dr. Aronne put me on a path to healthy living, and I’m sure this book can do the same for you. His advice on diet and weight loss is insightful. Dr. Lou saved my life.” —David Letterman

“Dr. Aronne’s care and advice changed my life, and I’m forever grateful.” —Emily Brill

“Dr. Aronne’s new book is the most informative and intelligent approach to understanding weight loss and gain. Starting with page one, you will immediately feel healthier and better off. A must-read!” —Harvey Weinstein
