The book has many new tables and images, and is loaded with Weight Control information not found anywhere else!
Weight Control - U.S. Edition contains no gimmicks and makes no outrageous claims. Rather it provides a basic understanding of weight loss and weight maintenance that you will return to again and again.
Vincent W. Antonetti, Ph.D. is an emeritus professor of mechanical engineering at Manhattan College. His technical specialties are thermodynamics and computer science. He is also a weight control and fitness expert who has lectured on fitness at IBM Management and Professional Development classes and often speaks on fitness and weight control.
Among his many publications is his highly regarded “The Equations Governing Weight Change in Human Beings,” published in the prestigious American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Recently, Dr. Antonetti co-authored "A Computational Tool to Simulate Energy Balance Components in Pharmacological Interventions," presented at Obesity Week 2016. He also coauthored (with Professor Diana Thomas) "Dynamic Modeling of Energy Expenditure to Estimate Dietary Energy Intake," Chapter 12 in Advances in the Assessment of Dietary Intake, published in 2017 by CRC Press. He is currently working with Professor Thomas on a paper tentatively titled "Why is it so Difficult to Lose Weight By Exercise Alone?"
Professor Antonetti is a life long exercise and nutrition enthusiast. Although a senior citizen he still maintains a vigorous physical fitness program - and has managed to maintain his weight to within two pounds of the 154 lbs it was when he graduated from college, many years ago.
