From Library Journal:

With 26 percent of all American adults at least 20 percent over their ideal weight, it is no wonder that diet books are so numerous. Both of these guides for permanent weight loss target dietary fat as the dieter's nemesis; both are upbeat and cheerful; and both emphasize the importance of relearning eating habits. But each approaches diet and weight loss differently. Ezrin and Kowalski blame the "metabolic trap" of hyperinsulinism as the underlying problem of obesity. By decreasing the secretion of insulin, maintaining a high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet, and controlling fat intake, weight loss is assured. This well-researched book provides understandable explanations, a somewhat rigid diet plan, and lots of moral support. Ezrin, an endocrinologist, lends authority by citing studies, and he also addresses physicians directly in the chapter "Doctor to Doctor." Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 11/1/89. Goor's book also offers a plan of action for permanent weight loss. The author emphasizes the importance of exercise and new lifelong eating patterns. But in this guide, carbohydrates are the "good guys." The appeal of this diet is its flexibility and simplicity. The reader is referred to Goor's Eater's Choice ( LJ 4/15/87) for more in-depth information on diet. Just as no two dieters are alike, so each of these guides provides a different weight-loss strategy. Including both in public library collections is recommended.
