I have done a lot of research but still felt this book was helpful in that it does list many troublesome "disorders" of the body that can lead to weight gain and difficulty losing it. What I especially like is that for every problem, such as Insulin Resistance or Thyroid Dysfunction, there is a chart with supplements and herbs that are helpful for correcting each situation. She also shares how many of the disorders work together to cause gain and how to overcome the problem (s). This is not a quick-fix diet book, but more of a a guide to rebuild health so your body can get to a healthy weight. I would recommend this book.
Don't expect any miracles here-- it's a very straightforward listing of typical reasons for weight gain. Solutions? Not really. Pretty much "Go and see your doctor" is the answer in every chapter. Get bloodwork/labwork done.
Again, this is a primer. For a newbie into weight loss research, it would definitely be a helpful guide to know what to ask your doctor to check for, as well as some good common sense ideas of how you can change a few lifestyle choices to help you shed those unwanted pounds.
