ABC Science Article On Weightloss

Postby CronicBadger » Tue Jun 09, 2015 12:39 pm

An interesting article about Professor Stephen Simpson and his approach to tackling obesity. Nothing we don't already know, but hopefully it's an extra dimension that will eventually be incorporated into government health policy.

Being a formal entomologist (now self styled 'nutritional ecologist') is this a case of:
"one small step for insects - one giant girth for mankind"? :shock: :lol: :wink:

I do like this quote from him...
"If you tell people to eat less to lose weight and you don't take account of the fact that our bodies do more than count calories, then you're on a hiding to nothing."
If it was just purely maths then weight loss wouldn't be such a problem.

I was listening to the radio today and these guys were doing research on Polynesian culture and dietary habits.
One of the researchers asked an interesting rhetorical question "they know the health implications but change isn't happening".

Its that muscle between the ears that is always the hold out! :roll:
