Incorporating the latest information on obesity, weight loss and physical health, this is a weight-control programme just for men, from Garry Egger, creator of the original GutBuster Waist Loss programme. The book takes into consideration men's reluctance to this point to take responsibility for, and have an interest in, their increasing portulence. Full of practical advice about changing habits and increasing physical activity, it examines the low fat, low carbohydrate argument for weight-loss diets and comes up with an alternative solution - energy density. Similarly, Egger considers the controversy about the right type of exercise and concludes that the real issue is the volume of physical activity carried out - ie moving, not just exercising.
