Fed Up! is an important new book aimed squarely at the masses (mostly women) who are making themselves miserable and unhealthy by dieting. In Fed Up, Dr. Wendy Oliver-Pyatt - herself a survivor of bulimia as well as a medical doctor and psychiatrist specializing in mild to life-threatening eating disorders - provides ample evidence of the epidemic proportions of this problem and its devastating effects on people's physical and mental health (both short-term and long-term). She provides checklists to help readers recognize how "at risk" they may be, and offers a rare, personal, compassionate perspective as someone who has personally suffered from an eating disorder. (Now a happy, healthy, working mom, Dr. Oliver-Pyatt will be a great spokesperson for the book and an immediately appealing role model for her readers.) Dr. Oliver-Pyatt's view is that dieting is a self-destructive behavior that millions of people practice for most of their lives--with counterproductive, destructive, and completely exhausting results. Obviously, this makes no rational sense, and this book begins by taking a look at why so many otherwise smart people persist, redoubling their dieting and/or exercise efforts with each attempt to lose weight. The book then moves on to a comprehensive ten-step plan to help people understand their own attitudes and behaviors and create a health-promoting, sustainable lifestyle - without ever counting another calorie or a fat gram, stepping on a scale, fearing "fattening" foods, or feeling guilty for missing a workout. Although there are countless diets books on the market, this one has a lot to offer: It is medically sound (written by a respected MD specializing in overcoming eating disorders), its author will appeal to the target audience (she has overcome an eating disorder and is now a happy, healthy working mum), and it takes a holistic, intelligent approach to adopting a fit lifestyle. Another appealing aspect is that the book does not try to sell the reader anything - no meal plans, no supplements, no "ab rollers," etc. Finally, the book is clearly written with a tone that blends rigorous professionalism with a natural approachability.
