Anyone looking for common-sense advice on how to approach a weight problem might start by purchasing this booklet by former U.S. Surgeon General Koop. He begins the book by helping the reader assess whether his or her weight problem is a health risk. In particular, he challenges individual readers to consider whether this is the right time for them to try to lose weight, cautioning: "Understand that weight management is a lifelong commitment." He goes on to describe approaches to weight loss and weight management (a topic often ignored in many weight-loss programs). This book is perfect for someone who wants guidance and options for losing weight without being overwhelmed by information or a particular rigid philosophy. To order a copy, send $3 for shipping and handling to: Shape Up America!, Suite 306, 6707 Democracy Blvd., Bethesda, MD 20817-1129.
