Podcast 034: Book Club 2: Why We Get Fat by Gary Taubes, Chapter 5-8

Wendy and Dr. Meaghan discuss about Chapter 5-8.  These chapters talk about some of the other downfalls of the calorie-in vs calorie out fallacy that we have been lead to believe as a society. Our failure to pinpoint and come up with reasons for obesity is causing the obesity epidemic that we are seeing in this country.  35% of adults now are obese with a BMI greater than 30.  This is roughly 113 million people in the US.  We are even going backwards in our thinking.  The NIH said in 1998 that “obesity is a complex, multifactorial chronic disease that develops from an interaction of genotype and environment.”  Now the NIH looks at it as mainly a calorie in vs calorie out concern.

It seems like we want to believe that obesity is just about energy balance because it is easy solution.  We strive for 1 problem, 1 cause, and 1 fix, but we take out the many different layers of weight gain and management.  Not all calories are created the same and not all people are created equal either.  Obesity is not a 1 cause concern.

Check out www.btbha.com for more information, blogs, and podcasts.  We have also started a recipe section.  If you have a recipe that you would like to share, please send it to us at info@btbha.com and we will include it in our recipe section.  We would love to have a recipe collection for all of our community to use.

Be kind to others, take care of yourself, and make good choices.
