Even the article criticising the study is suspect.
"There is such a cultural assumption that weight loss is necessary that we ignore the evidence," said Linda Bacon of the University of California at Davis."
Um, Linda Bacon is the author of Health at Every Size
and a keen proponent of HAES. Identifying her as only "of the University of California at Davis" is disingenuous, at best.
Then there's this bit:
"Still, some evidence have [sic] suggested that intentional weight loss may be unhealthy for otherwise healthy people, perhaps, for example, because losing muscle could have detrimental effects on vital organs."
Um, what about dieters such as myself and nearly everyone else at 3FC who is working to build muscle?
I call BS!
