Natural Medicine For Weight Loss by Deborah Mitchell is an invaluable compendium of surprising and even amazing truths and fictions about weight loss.
Did you know for instance that the metabolic rate of two people of the same age, sex, and body type may vary as much as 20 percent? That most of the weight loss from popular high-protein diets is water, not fat? that your addiction to sugar can make it impossible for you to lose weight – unless you know the simple steps (and dietary supplements) for breaking it; That certain “thermogenic” agents can trigger the burning of body fat? That an herbal form of phen-fen is available without the health risks of the prescription drug? That lemon water or apple cider vinegar can reduce cravings? That self-administered acupressure can boost your metabolism – and reduce bloating?
All this and more in Natural Medicine for Weight Loss.
