Description: Few Americans are aware that obesity contributes to 300,000 deaths a year in America. Now medical journalist Michael Fumento -- himself a veteran of the diet wars -- turns his searing eye to the institutions, corporations, and individuals whose quick-fix weight-loss programs misinform the public while feeding a multibillion dollar industry.

Scouring thousands of scientific studies and interviewing dozens of health experts, Fumento exposes the diet industry for what it is, explodes the myths of genetics and low metabolism, and dismisses the low-fat-food fib, showing how "lite" is loaded with unwanted calories and "non-fat" makes us fatter. Most important, he offers honest, healthy, and helpful information about how important it is to lose excess weight, and how to keep it off forever.
