Booklist Review

Weight management requires far more than embarking on the latest fad diet, especially if one suffers from ``childhood onset'' obesity, the type ``most difficult to resolve and also the type . . . which is the symptom of family difficulties.'' Stuart and Orr emphasize that it is more ``important to resolve the emotional problems you grew up with'' and ``to learn to like yourself'' than to lose weight. While some might disagree with their position that you can be healthy and fat at the same time, everyone will agree that ``fat people deserve to be treated with respect by their physicians, families, friends, and the world at large.'' This book will help to guide readers in improving their self-images and in loving themselves at whatever weight. Bibliography; no index.
