      Whoa, I may have been reading another book . I "bought" his fatness right from the start. I too saw the numbers that didn't "seem" obese but it's funny...I work with numbers and charts all the time before I lay eyes on the patients we are taking care of and one thing I've learned is the numbers are one tiny piece of the person, NOT the whole person and they are often misleading. What is grabbing me in this book is his addictive personality. Weight issues do seem to be completely a mind/body thing......just talk to any anorexic. I think the author is bringing up some excellent points about yo-yo dieting too and why diets don't work. I was eating a bowl of popcorn (with butter and salt of course) when I was reading the last installment last night and I admit, I suddenly felt GUILT. but I got over it, lol. And, yes, I am going to read the whole book. I like his writing.
