I haven't been putting much effort into blogging these past few weeks. Frankly, a little break has been nice while I take care of other things in my life. But I haven't been twiddling my thumbs. Obesity research hasn't slowed down and there are many topics that I'd love to write about here if I had the time. I'll be starting a new series soon on the genetics of obesity-- a fascinating subject. I also plan to cover some of my recent publications on obesity and blood glucose control by the brain. Last but not least, we will soon roll out a substantially upgraded version of the Ideal Weight Program. Those who have already purchased the program will continue to have access to the new version.
