Eating Ourselves to Death: Best Treatments for Weight Loss

The FDA’s new commercial report on obesity intended to help the 64% of U.S. adults and 15% of kids who are overweight goes easy on Big Food.

But it gets wrong the right treatments: the right treatment is not to blame the victim (how many people have a “carrot (at hand), instead of a carrot cake?”), but instead, to change the environment in which we eat: what’s served in the cafeteria, in vending machines and to REQUIRE real information: how many adults would order a 2 ounces of fettucine alfredo (490 calories, 30 g fat, 44 g carbs), or a Double Whopper with Cheese (1060 cal, 69 g fat, 53 g carbs), if they knew their calorie, fat and carb count?

Here are a free state of the art review of the best treatments for weight loss links to the National Weight Control Registry which follows people who have lost 30# and kept it off for 5 years of more; and the reliable Aim For a Healthy Weight which contains a free downloadable tool for Palm PDAs and weight loss.
