Land O Lakes, Fla. (PRWEB) September 17, 2013
With the publication of his new book “Reflections of a Former Fatty: How to Win the War against Weight Once and for All” (published by iUniverse), author Thomas Slagle tackles one of the most contentious issues of American culture: weight loss.
“I had tried and failed to lose weight by following traditional diets that were in vogue, yet I couldn’t stick with them because I was expected to give up great-tasting food that I loved,” Slagle says. “I knew I needed a better way if I were to succeed at losing the weight excess weight. This book is a humorous and inspirational in-depth look at the self-designed weight-loss program I created with my family physician that taught me how to develop the willpower I needed to finally win the war against weight once and for all.”
Slagle knows his book is necessary, and not just for personal reasons. “Obesity is an epidemic in America,” he says. “It is a key health issue in America and causes not only health risks in the individual, but also increases the cost of health insurance for employers.”
