In the new WeighingIn Blog, health care professionals share their expertise on nutrition and obesity — one of the nation’s foremost health problems. The blog is an online community of researchers and other expert contributors from the Obesity Prevention Program—part of the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute’s Department of Population Medicine (DPM), a joint research and teaching initiative launched by the Harvard Pilgrim and Harvard Medical School.
The WeighingIn Blog serves as a forum for obesity prevention experts to share their insights and discuss research findings on diet, wellness, and obesity and associated health problems. Recent posts include such topics as: Are We Not Paying Enough Attention to "Fat Burners?," The Sleep Diet and Texting Your Way to a Healthier Weight.
We encourage you to contribute to the WeighingIn Blog by reading and commenting on posts, and recommending topics you would like to see covered. The blog will be updated at least once a week, so check back often for new posts. Since the blog posts are written for patients and providers alike, you may want to share this informative resource with your patients, too.
