The Failure of Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move Campaign


It seems like Michelle Obama’s ambitious “Let’s move” campaign is a failure. Childhood obesity is not being solved, and it’s clear why.

A focus on exercise before getting rid of added sugars is pretty much doomed to fail. Not even kids can outrun a bad diet.

Here’s a short summary of the problem followed by a very ambitious feature:

Dunk the Junk: The Failure of Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move Campaign

Politico: The Great FLOTUS Food Fight

Eventually we’re simply going to have to accept that a focus on calories and exercise is not going to solve this problem, because it’s not caused by calories or a lack of exercise.

The obesity epidemic is caused by poor food quality (primarily too much sugar and refined carbs) and likely the only way to solve it is to improve food quality.

Update: For example, banning real whole milk and instead serving massively sugar-sweetened low-fat chocolate milk is not an improvement. It’s a crime against our children.

New Study May Show Why Exercise Is Useless for Weight Loss

Exercise is almost useless for weight loss. Just about every serious expert know that trying to make people exercise more, in scientific studies, has an almost negligible impact on their weight.

A new study shows a possible reason. People who are very physically active do not necessarily burn more calories than people who are moderately active. The body seems to adapt, possibly by resting more after exercising.

It may be one of the main reasons why exercise is not useful for weight loss. Exercise is good for health, strength, well-being, many things. But when it comes to weight loss, it’s almost all about what you eat.

Exercise can be a bonus while losing weight, but you’ll have to do it in a smart way:
