Fries, Thighs, and Lies: The Girlfriend's Guide to Getting the Skinny on Fat

In this lively, contemporary book aimed squarely at women, author and clinical nutritionist Deborah Arneson fixes her sights on FAT and the lies surrounding it. Her stated purpose--to put fun in nutrition--makes the case, often humorously, that many of the dictums of dieting are just plain WRONG. Her direct, no-nonsense talk about what works and what doesn't makes for an entertaining take on a (literally) deadly serious subject--the ineffective-at-best, disastrous-at-worst methods being promoted for dieting and weight loss. Her oft-repeated point--that it is fat women want to lose, not weight--is buttressed by her extensive knowledge of nutrition and her more than twenty years of experience in the field.
