As an endocrinologist at Harvard, Dr. David Ludwig pioneered the use of a low-glycemic diet in combating obesity. His groundbreaking research is the basis for some of the most successful diets of the last decade, including the "South Beach Diet" and "SugarBusters." Ten years ago, Dr. Ludwig founded the Optimal Weight for Life Program (OWL) at Children"s Hospital Boston. There he and his team tailored his low-glycemic diet for children and combined it with a powerful nine-week progressive plan that benefits the patient and the entire family.
This scientifically proven approach addresses, for the first time, all three key factors affecting body weight--biology, behavior, and environment--and integrates them into a practical prescription for weight loss. It also recognizes the challenges children and their parents face in today"s toxic food world. We are surrounded not only by highcalorie, low-quality fast food, but also by more and more "fake food": processed foods unlike anything found in nature.
In Ending the Food Fight, Dr. Ludwig shares his program with parents everywhere, giving them all the tools they need to help their children win the food fight, once and for all.
