Here is a slide from one of the least insightful talks at the obesity conference. Obesity is “caused” by a positive energy balance, by “eating to much and lack of exercise”.
This is the biggest mistake on the subject. Developing obesity is of course associated with a positive energy balance. That’s just basic physics. But “caused by”? With the same lazy logic constipation is caused by eating too much and not pooping enough.
Of course constipation is caused by something else. Like obesity.
