Atkins works! Eat grapefruit—shed weight! Pilates gives you "long, lean muscles—no bulk!" Each day we are bombarded with conflicting fitness information, promises, and advice—from the Internet, magazines, books, TV, advertising, experts, trainers, coaches, friends. But how do you know whom you can trust?
In The Fat-Free Truth, Liz Neporent and Suzanne Schlosberg cut through the noise, synthesize the literature, and get to the truth by providing 239 accurate, straight-shooting answers to America’s most pressing fitness and weight-loss questions.

Liz fields weekly questions as the “Fit by Friday” columnist for iVillage, the leading Internet site for women’s issues. Together they receive more than a thousand questions a month from people nationwide.
