I’m often struck by how much obesity reminds me of the six blind men and the elephant.
Pharma folks think it’s all about drugs. Fitness folks think it’s all about exercise. Dieticians think it’s all about cutting out fat or maybe eating multiple smaller meals. Psych folk think it’s about therapy or intuitive eating or 12-step programs. Public health folks think it’s about taxing soda or banning ads. Et cetera, et cetera.
I’m sure all of these have their place in the solution. But just a hint. If you think you have “the answer” to solving the obesity problem, you’re probably looking at just one part of the elephant.
