    Informative and sprinkled with humor and how to's

    A refreshing read after so many other 'clinical' diet books. Applicable even to someone who may not suffer from Syndrome W but wants to live a more healthy lifestyle and lose weight. Harriette outlines things in an easy step-by-step plan and gives wonderful ideas on how to get started (i.e. kitchen overhaul, menu ideas and delicious recipes). I love the skim latte tip! This is a must read for anyone who battles with their weight. It is written with today's sophisticated, hip woman in mind. The personal experiences and spin Dr. Mogul injects make you feel you can really connect with the person and not only the doctor.

    Solid medical info and great chefs' recipes!

    Harriette Mogul¿s SYNDROME W is groundbreaking, highly informative ¿ and also fun. Her gourmet recipes make your mouth water, motivating you to start cooking her carb-modified meals right away. SYNDROME W is an absolutely unique mix of solid medical information, gourmet chefs¿ healthy recipes, and your loving aunt¿s gentle understanding of your resistance to exercise as she helps reorganize your kitchen for your new way of cooking and eating! Mogul is an endocrinologist who, in her own research, has discovered that many women who gain a substantial weight in their middle years are suffering from a medical condition that is virtually never tested for. Such women cannot lose weight even with dedicated diet and exercise ¿ until a medication called metformin is added to their regime. With metformin and proper eating habits, Mogul¿s patients are finally able to lose excess poundage. Because the proper medical tests are not widely done, Mogul lists precise instructions on two pages so the reader can easily photocopy them for her doctor, along with citations to the scientific literature supporting the efficacy of metformin. While the medical information derives from Mogul¿s academic work, her writing in this book is light, concise, and perfectly clear. Mogul gives all kinds of unique practical information about how to reorganize your eating habits ¿ e. g., travel and restaurant tips, and which ready-prepared low-carb products in your grocery store are truly tasty and effective (and her grande skim-milk latte tip, along with the scientific explanation of its effectiveness!). The last 100 pages of SYNDROME W are actually a gourmet cookbook full of 'Delicious Recipes from Great Chefs.' (Typical of Mogul¿s generous manner, she includes a bio of each of her chefs.) Gotta go reorganize my kitchen to cook these lucious recipes! Gotta go make an appointment with my endocrinologist for that metformin test!

    At long last!

    How I wish these insights had been available years ago when those first pounds went on to stay! This is the first book I feel offers actual tools for taking charge of those stubborn bathroom scales.
