Apparently when Harvard puts the time and energy into “discovering” that a “study” (which used ‘state of the art measures’) of a whopping 21 people for a few WEEKS shows that diets concentrated on fats versus carbs versus glycemic index are not all created equal! The human body apparently processes fats, carbs, proteins, etc DIFFERENTLY. At least, this obviously meaningful and rigorous study seems to think so.
In other “news”, the human body is not a bunsen burner. But, perhaps, I digress.
I think one of the most “amusing” parts of this is how they take this quote in the beginning (emphasis is mine):
Weight re-gain is often attributed to a decline in motivation or adherence to diet and exercise, but biology also plays an important role.
and yet go on to detail the virtues of non-biological means of making fatty people better able to STICK with those pesky diets. *eyeroll* It’s like they’re ALMOST there, ALMOST at the logical mind-step of realizing all this dieting crap is NOT a matter of simply willfully unmotivated people giving up…and then shake their heads against the logic anyway and go “Well, we’ll just have to try more ways to get those lazy bastards to keep on dieting”.
OH: by the way: I’m back! 🙂 Happy Summer/Winter y’all!
