In this book -- which is written in a warm, compassionate bedside manner -- Dr. Ludwig some simple, but effective ideas to turn your kids' passion for junk food into enjoyment for healthy vegetables, fruits, etc.
If anyone is equipped to give advice to parents to help their overweigt youngstgers, it's Dr. Ludwig. He's an endocrinologist at Harvard, who has pioneered the use of a low-glycemic diet in combating obesity.
Not only that, but his groundbreaking research is the basis for some of the most successful diets of the last decade, including the South Beach Diet and Sugar Busters.
In addition, Dr. Ludwig has personally helped more than 5,000 youngsters himself. Ten years ago, he founded the Optimal Weight for Life (OWL) program at Children's Hospital Boston. There, he and his team tailored his low-glycemic diet for children and combined it with a nine-week progressive plan that benefits the patient and the entire family.
Ending the Food Fight addresses, for the first time, all three key factors affecting body weight -- biology, behavior, and environment -- and integrates them into a powerful prescription for weight loss.
