Rethinking Thin

Posted by Racer on June 24, 2007, at 23:55:17

I'm nearly finished with "Rethinking Thin" by Gina Kolata, and it's wonderful. The subtitle is something like "the science of weight loss and myths and realities of dieting," and if you've ever felt like a failure for not being able to lose weight and keep it off, I recommend it most highly.

This books covers things like the history of obesity research, some of the political aspects of it, and I can't remember what else. If you're a little geeky, it's really fabulous reading. And it's quite well written, which helps.

I first heard about it on The Colbert Report. He started off singing a little, "If you like Gina Kolata..." to her. That's probably why I remembered her name. Sometimes I think I'm a total dork...
