It has long been known that some people, usually those with eating disorders, or on their way to having one, abuse drugs that are specifically designed for, or have a side effect that leads to, weight loss.
It appears that there is an increased prevalence for people to take pharmacological treatments to aid weight loss or maintenance.
These people are not like our previous sample as they have no form of psychopathology.
What was once thought to be the remit of the eating disordered individual and a sign of serious psychological dysfunction has become the playground of the norm.
This book discussed the reasons behind why people are taking them and how they work.
Moreover, the author aims to arm people with the knowledge that will defend them from the diet drug vendors who are now pervasive across the Internet and thus our society.
