About The Book

Obesity is a major modern health problem. The obesity epidemic has spawned a multi-billion-dollar industry, promising miracle weight-loss solutions, get-thin-quick diets, and too-good-to-be-true diet pills. According to recent government statistics, Americans alone spend $61 billion on diet products each year, which is equal to $200 being spent for every man, woman, and child in the United States. Whether they truly have a weight problem or just believe they would look better if they lost weight, millions of people around the world are scrambling for weight-loss solutions. But even with all the promises from the weight-loss industry, people are still gaining weight, and obesity rates have never been higher. Learn the truth about quick-fix diets and miraculous obesity cure-alls. Discover that most of these products are part of the problem rather than the solution. Learn how to reach your fitness goals without relying on fads, myths, and empty promises.
