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.
