By Lydia Turner, published 3/5/2012

The research simply does not support the idea that obesity is automatically harmful (except at statistical extremes).

This article seems to be both well researched and accurate. Binge/comfort eating, seems to often accompany depression and loss of self esteem.
Healthy exercise that is also fun! WOW! where have you been all of my fat fighting life?
Unfortunately I can't dance because of a very severe spinal injury; and besides, always have had two left feet. Moreover, other dancers always complain, whenever my sticks connect with their feet or trip them up. Killjoys.
Low GI foods seem to help those with weight problems; given they seem to satisfy and keep the Munchausen at bay for longer?
Great article, great advice! Rhrosty.

Thanks Lydia for this well-argued piece. It is fascinating to learn who is funding particular studies, and the obvious conflict of interest. If only everyone could be aware of these things.

Very good Lydia.

Dance-walking. Love it!

Iíve been an almost daily runner for many years. Never have been into dancing, but Iíll have to start incorporating a bit of dance-walking into my exercise regime. Only where no one can see me of course!!
