Offer expires December 31,1972. BALTIMORE, MD. D r. Neil Solomon, the latest Pied Piper of America's obese (one out of five), prescribes no pills, administers no shots, and offers no cure-all regimen for reducing weight. He promises no speedy results and insists that calories DO count--more than anything else. Yet he claims a 50 percent success rate over a 10-year period in helping patients shed unwanted fat. Author of a book called The Truth About Weight Control (Stein Day), which is becoming the Everything You Always, Etc. of weight-watching, Dr. Solomon has spent more than 10 years in obesity research. He has one primary truth: there is no miracle cure for obesity. There is only one cause for "fat"--the body is not burning up its calorie intake. Once the cause for this is found and controlled, weight loss can begin. Loss should continue at the rate of one or two pounds a week until the ideal weight is achieved.

That's when it's up to a doctor to detect the problem and treat it." Yo-Yo dieters- Throughout his years of studying the obese, Dr. Solomon has noted the "yo-yo syndrome." That's what happens to compulsive dieters who continually go up and down in weight. "Some of my patients," says Dr. Solomon, "look back over the years of being on and off (he diet wagon and realize that they've gained and lost their body weight three and four times over." Dr. Solomon has devised a one-week balanced diet of 1800 calories to reveal if a patient belongs in the yo-yo category, and if there is a physiological disturbance. If, after seven days on his 1800-calorie diet, a weigh!
