No info as to what to do or where to go for treatments.
I think this is a very important subject for our society today.
I'd recommend this book to anyone who sincerely diets and exercises regularly, loses weight by eating less and less and exercising more and more, only to find the weight back again in a year or two or three because their metabolism has ratcheted down to survival levels.
I am a patient of Dr Coopers' and am so glad to have this book to give to family, friends, and anyone else on the diet treadmill. After having damaged my body dieting for over 40 years I am now on the road to recovery. This process of recovering has included stopping dieting and starting including all real (not fake processed) foods in my life, forgiving myself for becoming obese when it was a lifelong metabolic hormonal malfunction and not due to a weak will, and exercising for the pleasure of moving my body - not to "pay for" having eaten something I actually enjoyed eating. In addition, my treatment has included taking specific medications tailored to correct my metabolic dysfunction
I heartily recommend this book to anyone, particularly anyone living in the United States, the center of dieting culture. TAKE IT TO YOUR DOCTOR!!!
Dr. Cooper shows patient histories (without using patients' real names) that demonstrate that with proper medical treatment weight gain can be reversed FOR THE LONG TERM, while she debunks the use of low-calorie diets which may help in the long term but can interfere with the metabolism over time. From the case studies she shows, it appears that it can take a long time for treatments to take effect, but when they do the successes are remarkable.
I plan to take this book to my doctor and begin a serious conversation about how I can be tested for the issues Dr. Cooper explains in this book and begin a treatment plan to address any of them that I have.
My recommendation to anyone who worries about or struggles with weight is to read this book (it's a pretty quick and easy read), do NOT diet, and talk to your doctor.
