Summary
Blending anecdotal evidence with hard science, an anthropologist and a public health doctor team up to explain how a change in diet three decades ago may be the reason women today are bigger than their grandmothers were. Explaining why fat (both in our diet and in our bodies) is crucial to long-term health, the authors not only show why women tend (and need) to get heavier after having their first child, but destroy cultural myths like "all fat is bad for you." Providing a plan that can help any woman achieve a natural, healthy weight without dieting, this book not only gives women the tools they need to shed weight, but also a better understanding of why those last five pounds seem impossible to lose
