The New Guide to Healthy Slimming Publication date : March 1, 2002

Seven years after the publication of Le nouveau guide du bien maigrir, a new revised edition had become necessary. The updates concern the following:
- scientific information: explanation of existing medication, surgery, etc.
- practical information: names and prices of products, addresses, etc.

But this more than a simple revision. The author has reworked the earlier edition, making it more pragmatic and easier to follow. Besides being a comprehensive slimming encyclopaedia — which is what had made the earlier edition so successful — the new revised Nouveau guide du bien maigrir is more assuredly than ever a practical guide to managing weight problems.
