Reviews by readers

This is one of the most important books - if not actually the most important book - to come out this year. While it appears to be about losing weight, or as the title says, Downsizing Your Body, it is really about so much more than that: living longer, living healthier, and avoiding the disease "traps" that surround us all. Clearly written, easily understood, this book is for everyone, slim or obese, healthy or sick. I very much recommend this to all. ~Scott Tips, President of the National Health Federation

The study involved 49,000 women aged 50-79, the age group that typically experiences post-menopausal weight gain. Fat intake was reduced to 20% and at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables were consumed over the 8-year study period, following the National Institutes of Health food pyramid and National Cancer Institute guidelines. One expert said this study is the final word on fat and age-related disease. An article in the New York Times said “The results do not justify recommending low-fat diets to reduce heart disease or cancer.
