The Secret Life of Fat : The Science Behind the Body's Greatest Puzzle Paperback


We lose it. We gain it. We hate it. We hide it. We shame it. We suck it in and we even suck it out. Fat is an international obsession, a dirty word, a subject of intense concern - and our least understood body part.

A groundbreaking combination of historical, cultural and cutting-edge scientific research, The Secret Life of Fat reveals everything we need to understand fat: how it influences our appetite and willpower, how it defends itself when attacked, and why it grows back so quickly.Find out how our genetics and hormones determine how much we fat we have and where exactly it will show.

Fascinating and surprising in equal measure, this book will give you a powerful new understanding of your body.

Sylvia Tara holds a PhD in biochemistry from the University of California and has worked at some of the world's largest biotechnology companies.

After noticing that she ate far less and exercised more than her friends, and yet couldn't lose as much weight, she began her research into the science of fat.
