Episode 525: Weight – the evidence may be slimmer than you think – PART II
In episode 525 – part two of our series on weight – James and Mike talk about how best to measure “weight” – and waste circumference, and hip -to-weight ratio and so on. We show that there is very little reason to measure much else other than actual weight. We also look at the evidence around whether intentional weight loss improves outcomes. Bariatric surgery evidence is also reviewed. And also a few other gems of knowledge.
