An informative, funny and entertaining look at how Americans have tried to curb their appetites with a multibillion-dollar diet industry. We love to eat but we want to be thin. So we patronize diet doctors, buy diet books, sign up for exercise courses, bind our thighs in plastic, let acupuncturists put staples in our ears, and swallow amphetamines which will run us crazy but which, we hope, will suppress our desire for a hot fudge fix. We travel to glamorous diet spas, join groups, and go on diets of every imaginable kind.
