Interested to get some discussion going on this. No, I'm not talking about the obvious health risks associated with obesity. Rather, I'm talking about what the recent studies seem to be telling us. The new HBO documentary on obesity references one such study. Apparently, even after keeping lost weight off for TEN years, the brain has still not adjusted. It continues to signal deprivation. And formerly obese persons report that they are hungrier than before and feel less-satisfied after eating. I think this is a significant topic. There is an emerging Fat Acceptance Movement. And a number of researchers and not a few trainers are recommending that obese people not be cajoled into losing more than 5-10% of their bodyweight, thereby enjoying substantial health benefits but, at the same time, adjusting to some level of obesity.
