Visit this website, www.conscienhealth.org. Read the posting, and then go to the list of the people working with them. What you’ll see — uniquely in this field — is no one in this group has an ax to grind. There are no “hidden agendas” trying to push people into various wellness or diet programs.
Quite the contrary, these are real, qualified, dedicated people. And they are driven by science and evidence, as opposed to profit. Their mission is to bring science to bear to the subject of food, health, and obesity. They wish to educate people that:
(1) Being overweight/obese is not a personal failing, but rather is driven by a set of variables that are far more complex than the wellness industry could ever understand;
(2) Calories in-calories out may work as math–but biochemistry isn’t math, and that’s what the wellness industry doesn’t understand;
(3) Paying people to lose weight, telling them that they just have to “work harder” at it, or “change their attitude” etc. are failed solutions.
Read for yourself.
