    In the talk, Tom talks about a study where obese people were put on a 600-calorie diet and did not lose weight. Is there any chance we could get a reference?

    Thanks in advance,

    I love Tom's talk, but I've already seen it several times here on diet dot com. Why is it in the 'news' section? Was something added? (have to watch it again, then)

    germans love 'K' instead of C. Was the tittle on purpose like this?
