"Obesity Paradox"

Just your daily New York Times fix: In Obesity Paradox, Thinner May Mean Sicker. Or, in other words, Why Health is Complicated and BMI is Silly.

Side note: I believe the article's author is the mother of a formerly anorexic child. I've never read her book, someone correct me if I'm wrong.


  1. Really interesting read! Yes, the article's author wrote Brave Girl Eating about her daughter, Kitty, who recovered from AN.

    1. Thanks langley! For some reason, your comments always go into my spam folder. No idea why, sorry about that! I'll be sure to check it regularly so they don't get lost in there.

  2. You're right about Harriet Brown, she has a blog also. I actually once did a phone interview with her for another article related to ED treatment but never saw it come into print. She's a really nice person.

    Interesting article, too!
