Summary
"Not a miracle program for weight loss, The Skinny on Fat is a revealing look at how the scientific view of obesity has resulted in a new definition of fat - one that contains more biology and less guilt. It is essential reading for anyone, regardless of weight, who is interested in living a healthier life."--BOOK JACKET
