What's the talk about?

With the increasing obesity epidemic comes the search for the 'magic bullet' cure for weight loss.

Weight loss is easy in theory, energy intake needs to be less than energy expenditure, but in practice this is difficult to achieve. There are lots of myths surrounding weight loss and these will be discussed.

One of my fabourite sayings is, "I'm not overweight I just have large bones" in the style of Garfield the cartoon cat. I am looking forward to discussing topical weight loss diets and current research themes.
