Product Details

Now, a pioneer in “obesity paradox” research delivers a message that everyone who struggles to shed so-called excess weight will want to hear. After research uncovered that overweight and even moderately obese people with certain chronic diseases often live longer and fare better than their normal weight counterparts, Carl Lavie, MD, realized that being moderately fit is more important for good health than having a low body mass index. Sharing the science behind these recent findings, The Obesity Paradox shows readers how to achieve what’s really important: maximum health—not minimum weight.

Learning Objectives

  • Comprehend the research regarding the relationship between overweightness and moderate obesity and longevity and certain chronic diseases.
  • Distinguish the relative health benefits of fitness versus normal body weight.
  • Articulate the relative importance of maximum health versus minimum weight.
