Twelve years ago, Dr. Ludwig founded the Optimal Weight for Life Program (OWL) at Children's Hospital Boston. There he and his team tailored his low-glycemic diet for children and combined it with a nine-week progressive plan that benefits the entire family. Dr. Ludwig wins parents' trust but also offers hope to their children who often feel teased, bullied, and defeated.
This scientifically proven approach addresses, for the first time, all three key factors affecting body weight—biology, behavior, and environment—and integrates them into a powerful prescription for weight loss. Dr. Ludwig compassionately recognizes the challenges children and their parents face in today’s fast food/fake food world, and guides them from conflict to cooperation along the road to health.
In Ending the Food Fight, Dr. Ludwig shares his program with parents everywhere, giving them all the tools they need to help their children win the food fight, once and for all.
