We are grateful to Laurie Bissett, M.S., R.D., and Terry Michel, D.P.T., D.Sc, for sharing their expertise in preparing the chapters on popular weight loss programs and physical activity.
Anthony L. Komaroff, M.D., and Nancy Ferrari of Harvard Health Publications provided important guidance to make certain that our message was clear. Raquel Schott organized the editorial process, and Judith McCarthy, senior editor at McGrawHill, helped greatly in shaping the manuscript.
The clinical research that forms the basis of this book is the result of the collaborative effort of many investigators around the world. In particular, our colleagues in the Diabetes Prevention Program, the Look: AHEAD study, and the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial have not only advanced the cause of medical science, they have taught us. Finally, the heroes of this story are the research volunteers. Their selfless dedication to answering important medical questions reminds us of the very best qualities that distinguish us from other species.
