Thoughts on Michelle Obama's dream of a nation with no fat kids.

I'm going to be on the Diane Rehm show on NPR at 10 AM eastern to talk about this.

Update: Shorter Diane Rehm Show

Me: The things Michelle Obama is advocating have been tried a bunch of times in large well-designed studies. They make kids healthier but they don't make them thinner. We know how to make kids healthier, we don't know how to make them thinner. So why are you trying to make them thinner?

The other three participants: Clap louder!
