I recently read a great article about why the fight against obesity is not working in the US. It’s a commentary on the new documentary on HBO titled “The Weight of the Nation.” Since author Gary Taubes says it so eloquently, I’ll just refer you to his article. I don’t know the details of the documentary, but I do know that the information in his article is right on. He talks about why it’s not as simple as calories in = calories out and that the real answer to weight loss isn’t about exercise, but more about what we are eating. He talks about sugar and insulin, and… well, let me just get to it. Here is the article called Why the Campaign to Stop America’s Obesity Crisis Keeps Failing.
