Nutrition By Carrie by Carrie Dennett, Mph, Rdn, Cd - 2M ago

I'm in Boston at the Nutrition & Health Conference, put on by the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine.

To state the obvious, I have not been blogging regularly, and that’s largely because I have so many (writing) irons in the fire right now that it’s one deadline after another!

Addressing some comments about my latest On Nutrition column in The Seattle Times, which took aim at Weight Watchers' targeting of teens but also carried the broader (and somewhat overlooked) message that wellness should be promoted for everyone, at every weight.

Weight Watchers announced last week that it would offer free memberships to teens ages 13 to 17. Yeah...I have a few thoughts on that.

So, I was minding my beeswax the other night when an angry email from a researcher popped into my inbox. He did not appreciate the vague reference (I did not mention the title, the publication, or the researchers names) to one of his studies in my Seattle Times column that had JUST been posted to the Times website that day. Dude must be part bloodhound.

I recently had a rather heated discussion with someone near and dear to me about the alleged association between higher body weights (body mass indexes, or BMIs, in the "overweight" or "obese" ranges) and health problems. Let's just say that if our walking route had taken us a little closer to Lake Washington, I might have tossed him in.

I want to talk about something that I've been thinking about—a lot—and that's been bothering me...a lot. Namely, the idea that you (or anyone else) needs to change your body to meet someone else's ideals.
