New Book! Fat Chance

Yesterday on NPR's Science Friday, Ira Flatow spoke with Dr. Robert Lustig about his just-released Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease. In the book, Dr. Lustig, endocrinologist and obesity specialist, deconstructs the mythology of fat. He says exercise, though one of the best things you can do for your body, won't help you shed pounds—and that fasting only worsens weight gain. So what does he say is the answer?

The book is currently listed on Amazon for $14.97 ... mine is in the mail!
