I get a lot of letters like the one that began with . . .
"I moved to MA from MD last Fall, and I believe that I need your help. I am a physical therapist, and I am keenly aware of the importance and positive impact of proper diet and consistent exercise."
People really believe that by acquiring special "knowledge" and regulating how they eat and exercise, they can change their fate. They so much want to believe this that they skip the crucial step of looking for real evidence for the position. If they did, they would find none.
