Earlier this week, I saw a tweet made by a medical doctor who is board certified in Obesity Medicine, in which he said “In a world where ultra-processed foods are cheap and accessible this notion that ppl should ‘just cut them out’ bc they are problematic is not practical for most.”

It’s a theme echoed frequently throughout the medical establishment, that when it comes to food that is killing us, it’s “impractical” to make changes that could sustainably reverse obesity and restore metabolic health.

Who’s to decide what is “practical” when someone else’s life literally hangs in the balance?
