A Mathematical Challenge to Obesity

Super interesante articulo en el NYTimes.com, cortesia de marquitos.

“… if you reduce your caloric intake, after a while, your body reaches equilibrium. It actually takes about three years for a dieter to reach their new “steady state.”

“The epidemic was caused by the overproduction of food in the United States.”

“One of the things the numbers have shown us is that weight change, up or down, takes a very, very long time. All diets work. But the reaction time is really slow: on the order of a year.”
