In an ongoing effort to help my students and readers sort fact from fiction I recently discussed obesity myths with Dr. Krista Casazza Ph.D. RD, Assistant Professor in the Department of Nutrition Sciences at the University of Alabama Birmingham. Dr. Casazza was the lead author of “Myths, Presumptions and Facts about Obesity” published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
In this 51-minute interview you’ll learn:
- the difference between a presumption and a myth and why it matters
- whether losing weight quickly is better or worse than losing it slowly
- if weighing yourself daily is positive or negative for weight loss success
- if breakfast really is the most important meal of the day
- which is more important for weight loss – sleep or meal timing
- about yo-yoing and whether you’re screwed if you’ve lost and regained the weight dozens of times
- what is most exciting to Dr. Casazza for the future of weight management research
and a lot more.
