What do you expect from the research journal Obesity?

This is what you get, at least on the cover of the journal's November issue:

I don't know about you, but I think Santa looks kind of grim. Ill, even. Someone should tell him that physical activity and fitness are a lot more important than weight. He might want to read up on the fact that being heavier later in life isn't such a bad thing, that in fact weight loss later in life isn't a good idea. So long as he stays active, making and delivering all those gifts, he'll likely live to a ripe old age whatever his weight.

Someone should give that guy a cupcake.

Looking for . . .

Greetings everyone!

I'm working on a story for the New York Times, and am looking to interview any of the following:

--> eating disorders therapists or clinicians with a history of eating disorders themselves
--> eating disorders patients who have been treated by therapists, nutritionists, etc. who have had a history of ED themselves

I'm looking to explore the pros and cons, so any and all feedback is welcome.

Please email me at hnbrown at syr dot edu if you'd like to chat or email. And please pass along the word.
