Why do we need a smarter science of slim? Dr. Colleen Rand, an obesity researcher at the University of Florida, provides a compelling reason. Dr. Rand asked 47 formerly obese men and women whether they would rather be obese again or have a leg amputated or be blind. Ninety-one percent said they would rather have a leg amputated. Eighty-nine percent would rather be blind. One patient said: “When you’re blind, people want to help you. No one wants to help you when you’re fat.”
I am confident that access to the last forty years of metabolic research can empower us to stop doing the same things over and over again, expecting different results. We can live differently. We can live smarter. And we can experience something profoundly better than short-term weight loss. We can experience long-term fat loss and robust heath. We can live a smarter science of slim.
