As a plastic surgeon specializing in aesthetic surgery, I am acutely aware of how a patient’s metabolic balance effects healing and the aging process in general. Many of my patients who seek improved body contour also realize that nutritional aspects of rapid healing are as important as the surgery itself. “The Fat Resistance Diet” addresses the subject of metabolic harmony more completely and simply than any other program I have seen. Its logical and common sense approach to healthy living is easy for patients to follow, and maximizes their ability to achieve the best possible surgical result. In over 25 years of practice, this book has provided me with the best answer to the question “Doctor how can I lose weight, and keep it off?”

"Dr. Galland's insight into fat resistance and disease alters the diet book landscape. In the crowded field of weight management programs, The Fat Resistance Diet stands out because it offers success not only in weight loss,but also in achieving true wellness. This program has helped many of my chronically ill patients - from those with sleep apnea and allergies, to professional performers plagued by reflux. Jonathan's recipes are easy to prepare and delicious."

"The simplest answers come to us from those mentors that see through complex issues and help us precisely set the lever at the correct fulcrum point that activates the greatest leverage--to move the mountains that loom large in our lives. Dr. Leo Galland's book, The Fat Resistance Diet: Unlock the Secret of the Hormone Leptin to: Eliminate Cravings, Supercharge Your Metabolism, Fight Inflammation, Lose Weight & Reprogram Your Body to Stay Thin, provides just such a successful handle for applying the force to achieve efficacious changes that consistently produces results. Rarely does a day go by in my busy clinic without one of my patients with complex medical problems (e.g. diabetes, CV heart disease, arthritis, etc.) reporting gleefully their unexpected benefits from simply changing the content of their diet following from recommendations in The Fat Resistance Diet and adherence to Dr. Galland's top 40 Fat Resistance foods and useful recipes. They are often surprised that my initial suggestion that diet is "more than calories" but rather much, much more the information molecules that integrate to sustain our health or push us into the tangential alleys of disease. Dr. Galland's book is imminently readable and applicable for every patient setting forth on a journey of discovery of self-healing through informed changes in lifestyle. My patients often leave my clinic with the name of this author and title of this book-instead of the name of a drug--written on my prescription pad."
