Hungry for Solutions: A Mother's Quest to Defeat Hypothalamic and Childhood Obesity
Marci Serota, author
Childhood obesity is an epidemic in America today. In this fast-paced, consumerist society, people are bombarded daily with food options that are uber-processed, addictive, and that barely resemble the food that humans were meant to eat. As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Marci Serota has strong opinions about the food available to our youth today, and the expertise to circumvent these obstacles when it comes to raising her own children. But nothing could have prepared her for a diagnosis of Hypothalamic Obesity in her young son – a condition that causes constant hunger and severe obesity that does not respond to diet and exercise, until now. With immense strength, love, and sacrifice, Marci stood by her son as they both struggled to get him to his now healthy weight. She provides this instructive and inspiring text full of tips, recipes, and advice to parents around the world struggling with similar diagnoses in their children, and for anyone trying to promote a healthy lifestyle for their family.
