About the Book

Adam 3XL tells the story of teenaged Adam, a basketball player who manages his way out of personal crisis and disease, which caused him to gain weight. He accomplishes a turnaround by following a few simple, proven health principles. The book addresses young people or anyone with a weight problem, who has acquired an unhealthy lifestyle. The story is meant to inspire them as well as provide them with the tools to make a change for the better. It uses language, motives and symbols deliberately chosen to address a large readership.

As a general practitioner, Dr. Martin Noelke encounters patients on a daily basis, who as a result of complex individual and environmental factors have acquired an unhealthy lifestyle combining poor nutrition with little exercise. With over twenty years of professional and personal experience, he can accurately depict the causes as well as the psychological, social and health-related consequences of Adam’s lifestyle.

His approach is deliberately different from standard approaches in health education. This is a story to which readers can relate on a personal level, it will inspire and empower them to change. It’s a fascinating story about basketball, love, friendship, and some simple nutritional principles.
