Separating Fat from Fiction: Exploring Myths, Realities, and Assumptions
This lecture reviews research done in the field of obesity and consequently challenges some of the commonly held beliefs regarding obesity and its relationship to mortality and health. The effects of dieting are examined as it relates to physiology, psychology, and health. In addition, a review of how exercise relates to health and longevity is discussed. This lecture supports the concept of HAES (Health At Every Size) and suggests the focus should be shifted from weight to the more attainable objective goals of a healthier diet and physical activity.
