War On Weight

War On Weight

by Victor Ong

The fight against excess body weight has never been more urgent. Recent scientific and clinical advances have deepened our understanding of obesity and the terrible effects it has on people. In virtually all the medical spheres of cancer, aging, autoimmune disorders, heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes mellitus and obstructive sleep apnoea, obesity is now recognised to be a major risk factor. Men and women across the globe try different ways to achieve their ideal weight but fail miserably. This is simply because they cannot keep up with the fitness regime or cannot resist consuming "comfort" foods and drinks. Ironically, these measures are not absolutely necessary for lifelong weight control. Clearly, today's two billion overweight and obese people in the world must tell us something - the failure of current weight control practices to treat the obesity pandemic. In War on Weight, Dr Victor YC Ong, a medical scientist, presents to readers a new paradigm for lifelong ideal weight - the Tri-phasic Lifestyle Regiment (TLR). He details in this groundbreaking book, how TLR can lead people to achieve real, effective lifelong solutions for their weight problems - underweight, overweight. obese and morbidly obese.
