The coauthors, collaborators on fitness books and directors of a London health clinic, advance the provocative thesis that certain toxins (e.g., prescription drugs, food additives, environmental pollutants), which the liver is unable to neutralize, are stored by the body in the form of persistent fat. Once the body is rid of these poisons, weight loss becomes easier, and an exercise program can begin. Their explanation of Persistent Fat Retention (PFR) syndrome includes a list of susceptibility factors (female gender, allergies, short stature, use of oral contraceptives) and possible warning signs (rashes, brittle fingernails, hair loss). This is a detailed, cogent approach to weight reduction; unfortunately, the authors are verbose. Six appendixes provide further information on food additives, prescription drugs, organic food suppliers and more. Troll Book Club alternate.
