Obesity is a global pandemic rising beyond the status of a lifestyle disorder, and its consequences include impaired metabolism, energy disruption, and abdominal fat deposition and storage.  Body Recomposition: A Comprehensive and Metabolic Alternative to Weight Loss presents information on body recomposition, which emphasizes the approach of losing fat, whilst gaining muscle.  It contains vast research on topics including factors that influence fat accumulation; strategies for weight management; healthy diet and eating patterns; physical exercise; and lifestyle strategies in healthy weight management.



Gluten-free diets and the influence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in stored fat accumulation

An analysis of survival panic, and the immune-driven force behind fat accumulation

Roles of leptin, ghrelin, NPY, cortisol, and diverse neurotransmitters in appetite correction and regulation

Gut-brain axis role in metabolism and body recomposition

Efficacy of phytochemicals in weight management and roles of green tea in weight management

Importance of physical exercise and manageable lifestyle factors


Existing commercial weight loss strategies can fail to achieve and maintain sustainable weight loss, enhancing greater healthy fat loss.  This book provides an improved alternative for dietitians/nutritionists; health practitioners and clinicians; as well as food and nutrition scientists.
