Obesity has reached epidemic proportions in African-American communities. More than a third of African-Americans are overweight; even more alarming: nearly sixty percent of Black middle-aged women are obese. Besides being an emotionally and physically debilitating condition, obesity can trigger -- as well as aggravate -- ailments such as hypertension, heart disease, and diabetes. Now, written for -- and by -- black Americans, "Black Health Library Guide -- Obesity" explains everything readers need to know about preventing, controlling, and reversing obesity. Includes full-week menus for healthful weight loss.
