Overweight is a Family Affair

A revolutionary approach to weight control, in his forthcoming book, Overweight is a Family Affair. The bedeviling issues of the obese child are no longer the burden of the child, but appropriately the concern of one’s entire family. Not another dietary manual, but rather a complete family based program that accurately places all the concerns about weight control in the hands of parents and children alike. A child’s will power is no longer seen as the road to health, but rather the joint efforts of the entire household hold the key to health and well-being.
