Obesity – Too Quick to Judge Cause and Effect

Very honest and insightful talk by Peter Attia on the relationship between insulin sensitivity and obesity.

In addition, Peter talks about how he and many others (I am sadly in this boat as well) are often way too quick to pass judgement on someone who is overweight. The prevailing wisdom of some people just eat too much really doesn’t hold weight (just noticed this pun…sorry) if you look at the research.

I do believe it is possible for everyone to be lean(er) and achieve a healthy weight/lifestyle, but blindly eating less and  exercising will not get most people to the promise land. Until we as a society can make this connection, we will continue to see an increase in our collective waistlines.
