Obesity is not simply weight gain nor is it a cosmetic or fitness issue. Your goal is to reduce the hazardous and ugly fats that surround your abdomen and organs, deep within your belly that put you at risk for degenerative diseases such as heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, sleep apnea, cancer, gout, osteoarthritis and others. There is no quick fix to fat loss, only prevention, as obesity is a lifestyle disease. It took you years of poor eating habits and a sedentary lifestyle to make you fat. Fat loss is therefore not an event, a program (dieting) nor merely a number you see on the weighing scale or your BMI. A pair of “loose pants” is a better indicator of fat loss. In essence, if you lost weight without reducing your waist circumference, you haven't done much for yourself. To escape from the obesity trap, counting calories, dieting or cutting fat out of your diet or starvation will not help. Instead, to lose fat, you need to know how the body stores and burns fat. You need to incorporate certain lifestyle changes to mobilize your hormones to co-operate with the body to burn fat to overcome your body’s resistance to permanent fat loss. That is what this book is all about.

The Obesity Trap and How We Can Escape It
Author: David Lewis,Margaret Leitch
Pubpsher: Random House
Our planet is in the grip of an obesity pandemic. More than a billion people worldwide are overweight and over 600 million are obese. We live in an obesogenic environment in which it is much easier to get fat than to stay fit. How has this come to be? Who is to blame? What can we do? In Fat Planet, Dr David Lewis and Dr Margaret Leitch examine the social and psychological causes of the obesity pandemic in order to answer these questions. They use ground-breaking research to highlight the behaviour of corporations that relentlessly promote foods high in sugar, fat and salt, and show that these ‘junk’ foods have shockingly similar neurological effects to hard drugs. They consider the prevalence of food cues which unconsciously stimulate our desire to consume. And they debunk the myths of fad diets and slimming pills, suggesting practical, easily implemented strategies for sustainable weight loss. The evidence is clear: our problem with obesity must be addressed or we will face catastrophic consequences. It is not too late to change.

In the dramatic narratives that comprise The Republic of Nature, Mark Fiege reframes the canonical account of American history based on the simple but radical premise that nothing in the nation's past can be considered apart from the natural circumstances in which it occurred. Revisiting historical icons so familiar that schoolchildren learn to take them for granted, he makes surprising connections that enable readers to see old stories in a new light. Among the historical moments revisited here, a revolutionary nation arises from its environment and struggles to reconcile the diversity of its people with the claim that nature is the source of liberty. Abraham Lincoln, an unlettered citizen from the countryside, steers the Union through a moment of extreme peril, guided by his clear-eyed vision of nature's capacity for improvement. In Topeka, Kansas, transformations of land and life prompt a lawsuit that culminates in the momentous civil rights case of Brown v. Board of Education. By focusing on materials and processes intrinsic to all things and by highlighting the nature of the United States, Fiege recovers the forgotten and overlooked ground on which so much history has unfolded. In these pages, the nation's birth and development, pain and sorrow, ideals and enduring promise come to life as never before, making a once-familiar past seem new. The Republic of Nature points to a startlingly different version of history that calls on readers to reconnect with fundamental forces that shaped the American experience.

The three main goals of universities are the education of students, the advancement of knowledge, and the university’s social engagement. This book introduces the concept of a 'post-Humboldtian university' which values each of these goals in its own right, and the 'fully functioning university' as one which expresses the three goals entirely.
