Obesity is epidemic in America. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Obesity Task Force (IOTF) state that obese and overweight people are susceptible to many obesity-related diseases.

Reliable information shows that obesity or its fundamental causes can lead to arthero-sclerosis, high blood pressure the silent killer, arthritis, type II diabetes and some forms of cancer. These conditions, and very often their medical treatment, can result in heart attack, stroke, congestive heart failure, a degraded immune system and vulnerability to many diseases. That is why obesity must be considered an insidious killer; it creates a risk to health deterioration and premature death.

The Marshall Plan is the definitive answer to the problem of epidemic obesity. It lays out the necessary knowledge in understandable detail. It is not a diet in the conventional meaning of the word. It is a lifestyle that uses ordinary food correctly consumed and simple natural and pleasurable recreational exercise correctly performed.

The book lays out the essentials of fat and weight control as a series of discussion chapters giving a brief explanation of each of the principles involved and then a number of simple straight forward instructions at the end of each chapter.
