Starred Review. New York Times reporter Kolata may be the best writer around covering the science of health. Here she offers an eye-opening book that questions all our received wisdom about why we get fat and the health hazards of those extra pounds. In chapters equally entertaining and dismaying, Kolata (Flu) traces the history of dieting fads back to the 19th century; discusses our changing ideas about the ideal body (thinner and thinner); and, most importantly, explains how genetic and biochemical understanding has (at least among researchers) replaced the view of obesity as a lack of self-control. Most dramatic is Kolata's recounting of Jeff Friedman's groundbreaking search at Rockefeller University for the "satiety factor," a hormone he called leptin that tells our brains when we're full. The science alternates with moving chapters in which Kolata follows a group of people in a weight-loss study who are trying desperately to get thin

Idealized images in the media inspire devotees of this

Do YOU WANT TO GET BETTER, but are afraid to let go of your eating disorder? After all, your eating disorder has defined who you are, has been a constant in your life, and has helped you cope and navigate your own world. To leave it behind would mean you wouldn't know who you are, how to act, or where to begin. Right? Wrong. According to renowned eating disorder specialist and bestselling author Ira M. Sacker, M.D., thoughts like these are due to something he calls the Eating Disorder Identity, which is a major road block in preventing you from getting better. In Regaining Your Self, Dr. Sacker introduces and defines this concept for you, explaining that in order to move away from the Eating Disorder Identity, you must transition to a new identity
