Finally, the Straight Scoop About Weight, Nutrition, and Fitness

As the co-editor of a health journal Im exposed to almost everything new written on the topics of
weight, nutrition, and fitness. I can honestly say that Allens course is one of the most comprehen-
sive, accurate and eye-opening texts Ive seen on these topics in many years. Everyone interested
in separating out the facts from the fiction and improving their health should take advantage of this
valuable resource

- Jon Robison, PhD, MS Nutritionist, Co-Editor of Health At Every Size Journal, Okemos, MI

The information in this course turned my understanding of how to lose weight upside down and
made so much sense I knew it would work. 16 months later I had lost 70 pounds with no food depri-
vation or struggle --- and I cant imagine ever gaining the weight back now that I have an accurate
understanding of how my body works.

- Sharron Patapoff, 61-year old mother of two, Aloha, OR

I read an early draft of Allens course about two years before it was published that changed my
entire thinking about weight management. Ive applied what I learned to my own situation with
great results and am eager for the published version to be available for my patients.

- Dr. Westfall, practicing physician and inventor of the CPR Microshield, Neenah, WI

Your course is 180 degrees opposite of everything I ever learned in 50 years of dieting. You have
given me a wealth of information to draw upon. Im sure Ill be referring to your course often."

The Straight Scoop About Dieting

I am thrilled to learn of your book being published once again. It has been an invaluable aid to me
and my friends since I first read it in the early 1980s. Reading your book those many years ago was
the beginning of my healing from diets and self loathing. I have kept it and referred to it so many times
through the years. When it was first published, it was way ahead of its time. Now with the greater
understanding of weight issues, your book could reach and help more people than ever before. If ever
a book should be featured on Oprah, it is yours.

- Margaret Tannich, business owner and life coach, Houston, TX

Ms. Patton strikes a perfect balance between personal experience and scientific research, providing a
richly humorous and informative read. Anyone who has ever dieted will recognize him or herself in her
writings. Before you try that next fad diet or weight-reducing gadget, sit yourself down and read this
book. It will change your life.

- Karen Provenza, middle school teacher, Napa, CA
