"Drs. Deutsch and Schweitzer provide a most welcome, bracing dose of reality regarding weight control! Of course calories count. But that does not mean you need to spend your life counting calories. The quality of foods influences health AND the number of calories it takes to feel full. Deutsch and Schweitzer talk sense from start to finish. Very refreshing- and empowering fare!"
