The promise of safe, permanent weight loss has sold many books, and this book could fulfill that promise. It contains medically sound sections on exercise physiology, biochemistry, and body composition and a quick, precise method for predicting percent body fat from three circumference measurements. In this method, the sites measured vary with age and sex; for example, abdomen, thigh, and forearm for young women and buttocks, abdomen, and forearm for older men. A mail-order diet and exercise program is offered that suggests prudent lifestyle changes. These changes are made quite palatable by allowing persons to select their own favorite meals
