The Obesity Myth

Last night I saw University of Colorado Law Professor Paul Campos speak about his new book, The Obesity Myth. Not only was Campos entertaining, but his message was important: there is little or no correlation between “obesity”, defined by body-mass-index (BMI) and health. Further, this obsession with losing weight leads people to unhealthy acitivities. Further, for me, it was a reminder that just because I’m thin, to say the least, I’m not fit.
