Obesity is one of the most common disorders in clinical practice. Defined (by the NIH) as a body weight 20% or more above "desirable" weight, over one third of adult Americans are overweight.If all Americans were to achieve a normal body weight, it has been estimated that there would be a 3 year increase in life expectancy, 25% less coronary heart disease, and 35% less congestive heart failure and stroke.Unfortunately, obesity is also one of the most difficult and frustrating disorders to manage successfully. Considerable effort is expended by primary care providers and patients with little benefit. Using standard treatments in university settings, only 20% of patients lose 20 pounds at two year follow-up while only 5% of patients lose 40 pounds. This lack of clinical success has created a never-ending demand for new weight loss treatments. Approximately 50% of women and 25% of men are dieting at any one time. Americans spent over $30 billion last year on diet books, diet meals, weight-loss classes, diet drugs, exercise tapes, "fat farms," and other weight loss aids!In this eBook you will learn why most diets don't work, what obesity really is and a diet that works!Order today and find out just how easy you can lose weight!
