Not all weight discussion is fat-shaming

I’m fond of Al Lewis, but we don’t always agree. In this HuffPost column, which I’m just catching up on, he equates all efforts to address obesity within wellness programs as fat-shaming. And that’s just overstatement born of inadequate understanding.

It’s OK, Al, I’m here to help, in the spirit of sharing.


The Center for Consumer Freedom, defanged

I’ve been very tardy in writing about this development, but today was the day, I guess.

Longtime readers will know that I pledged some time ago not to link to the Center for Consumer Freedom, a liar-ly named Rick Berman site. When I did insert a link, it was to this explanation of why I wouldn’t link to it.  


The future of wellness, published in Corporate Wellness Magazine

I have another piece in Corporate Wellness Magazine, this time a reported piece despite its having been labeled a column.

Headlined "The Future of Wellness," it asks wellness leaders at Southwest Airlines, L.L.Bean, and other companies what they're trying to achieve, and what's working for them. The story posted a while ago, but I realized this morning that I never shared it here. 

It's good. You should read it. 


The repeating question: Is obesity a disease?

I agree with Food Network talker Alton Brown, who tells Ana Marie Cox in the Sunday New York Times:

“I do think that most of us need to actually take responsibility for what we’re putting in our mouths. Obesity is not a disease.” And: "The second that our society starts thinking that shoveling Big Macs into our face is a disease then we’re done, we’re done as a culture.”
