Yep, finally......again.....and yet again it's being suggested that the weight loss dieting pretence is no longer sustainable.

I'm waiting for the international press conference where they announce this unequivocally, without rancour or emotionality, for good this time.

Not to mention apologizing to all fat people unreservedly, for deliberately choosing to make us look like liars who felt we couldn't even trust ourselves to report what was happening in our own bodies.

What's prompting this particular outbreak of reality is an example of the great saying;
You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time. ~ Abraham Lincoln
Typical rampaging hubris, this is pretended to be some kind of favour to the "public" who may be confused, by the imposition of falsehoods by those they trust to define absolute fact, the poor lambs;
the time has come to end the pursuit of the “ideal” diet for weight loss and disease prevention. 
Congratulations! You're taking the first step in breaking your chronic dependence nay *addiction to futile calorie deficits. We've been waiting.

I say beginning, because that of course would exclude the whole of "bariatric" surgery which cuts or ties off fat people's stomachs to a capacity of  2 or 3 tablespoons, or 45 mls (x 2 or 3). And sometimes throws in re-routing the intestines to induce mal absorption.

Or anorexia + bulimia as the rest of us know it.
The dietary debate in the scientific community 
Oooh, I'm going to have to add "debate" to the list of words that have been drained of meaning through continuous misuse. There has been no damn "debate". We have been told in no uncertain terms by boffins and quacks alike that weight loss dieting works. Don't even try to deny that. 

We have been lied to. Because those who think we are their puppets, felt that the truth would stop us trying to do something that doesn't work. Because like faith healing, homeopathy and putting your last penny in a fruit machine, it occasionally appears to work.

In a statistically insignificant sense. 

There have been whole swathes of what purported to be 'science' taking the workingness of diets as their starting conviction. It's still the basis of implying that fat people are mentally suspect and/or 'addicted'. 

The rationale is; it's simple, just stop eating. Still fat? Then you must have some kind of mental problem.
The only consistent finding among the trials is that adherence—the degree to which participants continued in the program or met program goals for diet and physical activity—was most strongly associated with weight loss and improvement in disease-related outcomes. 

If you continue to short change yourself on sleep, for the rest of your life, you too can prove sleeping your full allotment is a choice. Except it only is, if you do not mind sending your body's rhythms out of whack in the short term. In the medium to long term, pressurizing your mental and physical health to implosion;
“the brain literally keeps track of how long we’ve been asleep and awake—for weeks,” says Harvard Medical School (HMS) neurology instructor Daniel A. Cohen, M.D
Want to guess another balance of input/output your brain/body keeps full tabs on?
Progress in obesity management will require greater understanding of the biological, behavioral, and environmental factors associated with adherence to lifestyle changes including both diet and physical activity.
No, progress in understanding human biology will require boffins to quit their desire for religion level prescriptive interference in other people's lives and understand how human metabolism manages weight on an integrated level. Through this, finding ways to altering its underlying re-production of said weight, to either a lower or higher level. 

It would help if you deigned to finally truly acknowledge fat people as capable of observing their own lives, pointing out that this is what we've been trying to point out all these years.  

Apparently, noble lying means never having to say you're sorry. 

That's something only we fatz seem to have the stones to do.
