Healthy Eating & Nutrition Education: Q&A With Michelle Neyman Morris
Psych Central - almost 5 years
{via etsy} There are so many myths about healthy eating and good nutrition. As I said in one of my questions below, I feel like in our society, nutrition education is often used as a weapon to rein in eating, shame people into losing weight and promote guilt around certain food choices. Healthy eating has become synonymous with dieting and restriction and counting calories and good vs. bad foods. And I hate that. Many people develop a distorted, confused view of healthy eating thanks to a steady diet of women’s magazines, weight-loss commercials, obesity epidemic hysteria and self-created shame and guilt. That’s why I’m thrilled and honored to share this eye-opening interview with Michelle Neyman Morris, Ph.D, who clarifies the many misconceptions. Morris is a registered dietician, researcher, Health At Every Size advocate and professor at California State University.

Interview with Margarita Tartakovsky
Psych Central - about 5 years
Recently I had the chance to ask Margarita Tartakovsky, an associate editor at Psych Central, a few questions about eating behavior.  She blogs regularly about eating and self-image issues on her blog Weightless. Q. Why doesn’t the current model of treating obesity — only telling people what and how much to eat — work for most people? A. Great question, because the current model definitely doesn’t work. I can’t remember who said it, but there’s a saying that if you want to gain weight, go on a diet. Diets have a failure rate of about 95 percent. People may lose weight initially but then they usually gain it back and then some. So this model doesn’t work for many reasons. For one thing, genetics plays a prominent role in our weight. This is why you can have two people who eat the same foods in the same quantities look very different. One may be thin; the other may be considered “overweight.” Our bodies are more complicated than the “calories in, calories out” equation assumes. ...

ON THE LONDON STAGE; Neo-Classicism and Farce Fail to Lift London Stage Out of Doldrums
NYTimes - almost 8 years
LONDON -- How does the London theater get its buzz back? That's one question I've been pondering of late, as the British capital looks unusually somnolent, dramatically speaking, especially by comparison with a New York landscape in thrall to a bracing array of the classics, as often as not via productions that began -- where else? -- in London:
