Gr 4-8-This clearly written overview emphasizes the impact of super-thin celebrity images on general self-esteem, making weight loss seem like the answer to all kinds of personal problems. Zahensky considers the reasons people overeat and walks readers through practical steps to recognizing true hunger, making a weight-loss plan, and establishing good diet and exercise habits. She examines different types of fad and crash diets, pointing out their inherent dangers. Laid out with a kicky "scrapbook" look, Diet Fads incorporates color snapshots, color around the margins, and color highlights within the text. A practical, common-sense counterbalance to weight-loss hype, this is a solid starting point for students seeking information on the topic for reports or personal use. Anne M. Fletcher's Weight Loss Confidential: How Teens Lose Weight and Keep It Off-and What They Wish Parents Knew (Houghton, 2007) compiles firsthand accounts from teens who were successful at weight loss, and is a complementary follow-up.-Joyce Adams Burner, Hillcrest Library, Prairie Village, KS Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
