Sunday Smorgasbord

Hi, is there any chance these links can be made without Facebook being included in the URLs? I read your blog using my work PC and Facebook is blocked, so I can never get to check out any of your smorgasbord! Thanks!

Julianne,

Yes, they can. I apologize. It was a moment of laziness for me. I will go back later today and try and fix what I can.

Thanks for another interesting collection of articles on ED and ED-related topics! I especially like the Scientific American Mind article on the entertainment psychology/advice provided by the likes of Dr. Phil and Dr. Laura. I also love the article on the professor aiming to challenge the misconception that certain foods are "bad" and cause weight gain regardless of how much or how frequently they are eaten.

On the childhood obesity... I could bitch about a lot of things, including just how did they do the determination? BMI, most likely, and isn't it inappropriate for kids?
Aside from that, it makes me want to SCREAAAAAAM every time I see some well-meaning child nutritionist saying that "we'll just give the kids skim milk instead of whole", thinking that MILK, for God's sake, is the problem. Setting aside the question of whether the obesity numbers are real, whether intervention is needed etc. , for some poor children whole milk is the most nutritious food they could get. Young kids NEED fat, and besides, really.... just how much of their daily beverage intake is likely to be milk? Very little, I'd wager.
Just a pet peeve, but thanks for all the great stories. I have a whole list of people to whom I'll send the article about brain changes in depression, in an effort to teach them that, yes, depression really IS in the brain and no, I can't just "cheer up".

I'm a science writer, a jewelry design artist, a bookworm, a complete geek, and mom to a wonderful kitty. I am also recovering from a decade-plus battle with anorexia nervosa. I believe that complete recovery is possible, and that the first step along that path is full nutrition.
