Rethinking Thin : The New Science of Weight Loss--and the Myths and Realities of Dieting - 07 edition

Rethinking Thin : The New Science of Weight Loss--and the Myths and Realities of Dieting (ISBN10: 0374103984; ISBN13: 9780374103989)
ISBN13: 978-0374103989
ISBN10: 0374103984

Summary: ''In this eye-opening book, New York Times science writer Gina Kolata shows that our society's obsession with dieting and weight loss is less about keeping trim and staying healthy than about money, power, trends, and impossible ideals.'' ''Rethinking Thin is at once a story of the place of diets in American society and a critique of the weight loss industry. Kolata's account of four determined dieters' progress through a study comparing the Atkins diet to a low-calorie one becomes a
broad tale of science and society, of social mores and social sanctions, and of politics and power.''--BOOK JACKET.
