This is so well and powerfully done – I have been arguing similarly for two decades (though not as entertainingly) – thank you – just fyi – for the weight loss studies of course it is important to remember that
no matter what the difference in WEIGHT LOSS between diets might be in the literature – the practical significance is even less than you have suggested because almost everyone gains their weight back after the program is over – anyway – thanks again – for a wonderful experience!!
