    Thank you again for sharing! Since it looks like the preschooler paper isn’t published yet, I don’t know the details of the study design, but I’d be curious to see how these rules are communicated and enforced and a similar study over a longer follow-up period.

  2. From the salad article:

    He points out that the number of people drinking milk—particularly whole milk—has plummeted in the past few decades. Per-capita consumption of whole milk has tumbled by 78 percent since 1970—this in spite of aggressive “Got milk?” ad campaigns sponsored by the dairy industry.

    “People can switch their taste preferences, but it takes time and a concerted effort by the government,” Brownell told me. The USDA began pushing the skim variety in the fat-wary 1980s. “In the beginning, people thought ‘yuck!’ whenever they had skim milk. Now people find whole milk unpleasant.”

    Thus proving that government action can be effective … as long as they’re not recommending the exact wrong thing.

    Interesting article about weight gain and exercise. I’ve read similar ones as well that discuss how we overinflate the role of exercise when it comes to losing weight. It makes sense – I can eat 500 calories worth of donuts in 5 minutes but it would take me an hour or so to burn off that amount!

    When I actively exercise, I tend to eat healthier. And when I eat better, I have more energy and want to work out. For me the two go hand in hand. But I will admit sometimes I think too much about how many calories I’m burning. I try to focus on the health benefits and how good I feel after a workout. Thanks for the informative links!
