Researcher: Myths about weight loss are plentiful
from The New York Times
From Feb. 6:
If schools reinstated physical education classes, a lot of fat children would lose weight. And they might never have gotten fat in the first place if their mothers had just breast-fed them when they were babies. But be warned: Obese people should definitely steer clear of crash diets. Those are among the myths and unproven assumptions about obesity and weight loss that have been repeated so often and with such conviction that even scientists like David B. Allison, who directs the Nutrition Obesity Research Center at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, have fallen for some of them.
