This book, which is now getting close to thirty years old, should be reprinted for a new generation who are now afraid to eat carbohydrates. It's not a flashy or particularly beautiful book, but the information inside can help anyone to lower their body's natural set-point and live a healthier and leaner life.

This is, without a doubt, the only book a person need own if they've had a history of struggling to lose or maintain weight through endless dieting and/or starvation.

The author meticulously lays out ~ in a logical and concise way ~ the process through which the body stores certain foods and metabolism is affected. It becomes crystal clear, to even the most thickheaded readers, that starving/depriving oneself of food is entirely counterproductive to weight loss or maintenance.

I worked in the fitness industry in Atlanta for more than ten years, primarily as an aerobics instructor. I taught, on average, anywhere from 10-15, 90-minute classes a week, every week for the entire decade. I would often travel from one end of the city to the other, teaching corporate classes at Georgia Pacific, CNN Center and Southern Bell. I also had classes at Georgia Tech and Jeanne's Body Tech.

"How to Lower Your Fat Thermostat" was more or less the bible we followed in helping students who were anorexic, bulimic or both. It was amazing to me to discover just how many people ~ particularly those who worked out several times each week, thus, I figured should have known better ~ truly believed the only way to lose weight was by NOT eating.

This book is invaluable to anyone who struggles with this issue. After all, everybody HAS to eat, right? It also showed me how I could basically eat anything I wanted, especially given the fact my metabolism was so revved up all the time from all the cardio I was doing.

One thing I noticed then and today is that when a person exercises regularly and gets enough sleep, the body will generally crave foods that are inherently good for you.

My husband and I had much success with this book. The eating program outlined was simple to follow and the results were confirmed with our doctor. This program really does set your body up to burn off excess weight when followed as written. As always, see your doctor first if you are going to initiate a agressive weightloss program.

If you truly want to lose weight, and keep it off, there is no better source. Non of the Fads to "Lose 30 Lbs in a week" or "Magic Bullets" that simply do not work, or if they do work, they do not work for very long. The book explains the reasons as well as giving a workable plan to reach your optimum weight for long term good health. I bought this to replace my old copy. Not a short term diet, but a long term life style change to permanently control your weight, and improve your health.

My husband and I have been following this weight loss program for three years now. The first year we were not as diligent;however, the second year we were more diligent and my husband lost 100 pounds and I lost 50 pounds. The third year he lost 9 more pounds and I lost 11 pounds. This year I hope to lose 40 more pounds.
In addition to weight we look really good. We are fit and healthy. We eat a lot of whole wheat bread, potatoes, brown rice, corn meal. There are so many great filling foods you can eat and keep losing weight. It's all in the lowering of the fat thermostat!

I bought my copy of this book in 1985. I had the best weight loss success of my life with it. Now, over 30 years later, it is still the best 'program' I've ever followed. There's a reason why after moving several times and "downsizing", this book remains in my possession. I agree with the reviewer who suggested a reprint for this generation, but it does need updating.
