Inhaltsangabe

Fat is an obsession, a dirty word, a subject of national handwringing - and, according to biochemist Sylvia Tara, the least understood part of our body.

You may not love your fat, but your body certainly does. In fact your body is actually endowed with many self-defense measures to hold on to fat. For example, fat can use stem cells to regenerate; increase our appetite if it feels threatened; and use bacteria, genetics, and viruses to expand itself. The secret to losing 20 pounds? You have to work with your fat, not against it. Tara explains how your fat influences your appetite and willpower, how it defends itself when attacked, and why it grows back so quickly.

The Secret Life of Fat brings cutting-edge research together with historical perspectives to reveal fat's true identity: an endocrine organ that, in the right amount, is critical to our health. Fat triggers puberty, enables our reproductive and immune systems, and even affects brain size.

Although we spend $60 billion annually fighting fat, our efforts are often misinformed and misdirected. Tara expertly illustrates the complex roles that genetics, hormones, diet, exercise, and history play in our weight, and The Secret Life of Fat sets you on the path to beat the bulge once and for all.

    "Good research but bad for motivation"

    This book left me negative and discouraged.
    The good parts: It illustrates why exactly fat loss is as difficult as it is and provides somewhat of an example of disciplined behaviour that leads to desired fat loss. It provides detailed research and explains how fat can affect us. BUT the author talks mostly about special cases which don't apply to to an average listener/reader.
    However for me, after finishing this book, it seems that weight loss is impossible unless I learn to have a will stronger than any basic need and never indulge again in my entire life. All of this is basically impossible.
    I would have loved to have examples of behavioural research of weight loss e.g. How did people form habits to eat healthy and exercise more. Which tactics exactly help us to succeed? How can we beat the basic urge to eat? None of these questions were answered.
