    CALORIE COUNT

    Restaurant Calorie Counts

    Effective today, restaurant chains with more than 20 restaurants are required to post the calorie count of each meal on their menu. A law passed under Obama. This goes ahead in the face of ample evidence showing that posting calories does not significantly help people lose weight. This was true for multiple reasons. (A) People don’t know how many calories they should be eating; they haven’t been told in a clear way. (B) Calories are not the important factor anyway; insulin is.

    The fact that this measure went forward anyway, in the face of the evidence, suggests a problem with government, democratic government in particular, mainly that the appearance of action is more valuable to people in government than real action.

    VITAMIN D & TESTOSTERONE SUPPLEMENTS

    ​Binding Proteins Matter

    Many overweight patients take vitamin D or testosterone supplements prescribed by their primary care doctor. Few patients need it. Here is what is going on.

    IDEAL BODY WEIGHT?

    ​No Such Thing As Ideal Body Weight

    Many patients on their first visit ask how much they should weigh? I answer, simply, “less”. 

    There is no such thing as ideal body weight. There is only an ideal body weight range, and it is surprisingly wide. After all, what does “ideal” mean? To me, reasonably, it can only mean the weight at which the patients are least likely to get sick, the weight at which they are most likely to live the longest. It’s a wide range. The body is not such a delicate flower–it is resilient.

    Dr. Barry Mennen

    Dr. Barry Mennen

    ​I have not been keeping up with the Messages of the Week since March because I have been taking care of my seriously ill wife. But I have to send out this Message about Barry Mennen. He started renting space from me in January and I taught him all I know about helping people lose weight. He has applied the knowledge well, and added to it. Now he is getting results just as good as mine. I am still the original, but apparently I can pass this art on to other doctors. Any bariatrician who wants to learn from us is welcome to visit us. 

    I am in the office only three hours a day. If you want to be seen quickly, you may book with Dr. Mennen, instead of me, and get results just as good. By the way Dr. Mennen and I are almost the same age.

    MEANING OF THE WORD ‘DUTY’

    Duty

    ​As an experiment, I have asked middle-age and younger people to tell me what the word "duty" means. The majority of American young people believe it means ‘tax’, thinking of duty-free shops at airports. They are hard-pressed to come up with any other meaning. Isn’t that a pickle?

    Don’t Just Buy Bigger Pants

    ​Most people gaining weight notice when their pants or, I guess, dress gets too tight. I urge you NOT to simply buy new pants when that happens. Fight the good fight. Eventually, as you age or have children, you may make a few, grudging strategic withdrawals to larger pants sizes, but don't give ground willingly.
