  1. For me, this article became very interesting, because in my family my great-grandmother suffered from diabetes and overweight. As a teenager, I often heard from everyone that if I gain weight, then everything will be the same for me. I was always very afraid of this, and I am still afraid. In addition, I have problems with the thyroid gland and being overweight. That is, I am at risk. Now I try to monitor my health and normalize my diet, but still, the fears remain. After your recommendation, I really wanted to read this book, in order to understand everything in general and stop thinking about it so much.
