A Followup about Health and Obesity

A friend on Twitter linked this really great article about obesity and health campaigns touting the dangers of being overweight. To quote:
Given we know that fad diets make the majority of people fatter, there is a need to work out how to shift women's habits away from dieting and body dissatisfaction, and towards exercise and a more healthy relationship with their body.
 Yeah, totally what I was saying! Anyway, the article is really great, and I think the study being conducted, as discussed in the article, is a huge step in the right direction. Give it a read!!

  1. Dr Samantha is awesome! :-D Also, I recommend Linda Bacon's "Health at Every Size", which you can borrow if you want :-)

  2. Awesome, I'd definitely be interested in giving it a read. :) You often provide great links about weight and body image, I find them really interesting!
