KIRKUS REVIEW

Many M.D.'s consider the problems of overweight and underweight from the point of view of scientific safety in this collection of individually authored articles. What weight is normal for you; is overweight unhealthy (what conditions it attracts), hereditary? The part played by glands, the appetite mechanism, bad eating habits, psychological maladjustment; fads in weight reduction and the dangerous drugs and nostrums which are marketed; baths (no), massage (no), and exercise (limited); and the only way to reduce scientifically- by limiting your caloric intake- with many charts of suggested diets... An everpresent concern given complete coverage, this is a good job.
