This is a wonderfully detailed, comprehensive handbook covering psychophysiological and clinical aspects of obesity...The book's editors and authors are the pioneers of this field. It is the kind of book that professionals and advanced students in this area will be glad to get their hands on....An excellent and intergrated compilation of everything researchers and clinicians need to know....It is sure to become a classic must-have' text over the next decade for everyone involved in the treatment of obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.' --John P. Foreyt, Ph.D.
"This book, by distinguished and experienced conributors, addresses the risks of the seriously obese, many of whom have diabetes, hypertension, or disordered blood fats and cannot afford to turn away from their increased risk of mortality, and for whom some degree of caloric restriction or vigorous weight reduction is essential. It is particularly relevant to the growing and at times misdirected movement against dieting for weight loss. The authors critically examine the benefits, as well as apparent defects, of the measures available for the various types and causes of obesity. And, most important, while damaging weight cycling is so prevalent, they make practical suggestions as to how appropriate weight and lifestyle can be maintained." --Ethan A.H. Sims, M.D., Professor Emeritus of Medicine, University of Vermont
"Comprehensive and expert coverage...practitioners who work with the seriously obese will want to add this volume to their library." --John P. Foreyt, Ph.D. and G. Ken Goodrick, Ph.D., Baylor College of Medicine in Eating Disorders: The Journal of Treatment & Prevention
