“Some studies report that if you are obese but metabolically healthy, you are protected in a way. We don’t think that that is true. And I don’t think it will come as much of a surprise.”
Duke University creates a program to encourage Black women to simply "maintain, don't gain." My thoughts inside.
Ancient Egyptian remains have scientists questioning whether or not they know for sure.
I always look at these kinds of studies with a skeptical eye, but for some reason, this one resonates with me... especially as a recovering emotional eater and sugar addict....
"Twenty years ago, no state had an obesity rate above 15 percent..."
Scientists have uncovered some of what we already knew about metabolism and how the body burns calories.
Let's say that there really and truly is a national average of approximately 40% of Black women who don't work out because of their hair. Let's say that. Where does the conversation go from there?
"The notion that it’s O.K. to eat everything in moderation is just an excuse to eat whatever you want."
“The data is so overwhelming the field has to accept it... We are finding tremendous overlap between drugs in the brain and food in the brain.”
"...But my big take home message is that Black Media outlets have got to do better."
Apparently, y'all can't be made to give even a partial damn about "being fat."
