  1. If you look at the evidence to date, diets clearly increase the odds of gaining weight over time, albeit with temproary losses leading to greater gains. If we had detailed enough data, I’d guess every fad diet to date has been followed a year or two later by yet another increase in average weight. Our obsession with quick results and being unreasonably thin is self-destrucitve in many ways, and in the end usually self-defeating. Also, ironically, in the best study I’ve seen to date, the healthiest group was Overwieght, as we currently label things. “Normal” was second, and the kind of thin so many people seek inferior on a wide range of health measures, along with the obese. We badly need to separate cosmetic from health concerns.

    Thanks for following my blog, and welcome! I appreciate all feedback and ideas – Greg
