Authors Bio, not available


"Everyone who struggles with weight should read this important book. Dr. Lavie presents the science to support the truth that being overweight and even moderately obese may correlate with better long-term health and greater longevity--if you stay fit by making good food choices and maintain sensible physical activity. "The Obesity Paradox "is a story that has not been told in such a clear, evidence-based way. It challenges conventional wisdom and is exciting to read."--Andrew Weil, MD, author of "8 Weeks to Optimum Health" and "Spontaneous Happiness" "Dr. Lavie brings clarity to compelling cutting-edge science, fully validating the desperately important role of modifiable lifestyle choices in rewriting your health destiny. "The Obesity Paradox" offers up yet another challenge to some of our most long-held but unfounded beliefs in the health arena, especially when it comes to body fat. And he reinforces an often overlooked ingredient to living a good long life despite weight: the value of fitness. "The Obesity Paradox" is a must read."--David Perlmutter, MD, author of "Grain Brain" "In a society preoccupied with thinness, objectivity about how our weight relates to our health is often lost, and subtleties overlooked. In "The Obesity Paradox", Dr. Carl Lavie masterfully explores the relationship between body weight and health, giving us a balanced and uniquely illuminating perspective. If you want the whole truth and real understanding, lay down your preconceptions, and pick up "The Obesity Paradox"."--David Katz, MD, author of "Disease-Proof" ""The Obesity Paradox" is an important contribution to our understanding of one of the most interesting and unusual observations in medicine today. This book is highly recommended reading. "--Joe Alpert, MD, Editor-in-Chief of the "American Journal of Medicine"
