While I have covered the literature on the “health protective” effect of lower body adiposity and have previously discussed my original paper investigating the effect of losing lower body fat on metabolic health, along with Dr. Jennifer Kuk, I just published a letter to the editor at the International Journal of Obesity discussing some of the limitations of a recent review in the area. Rather than yet again writing about lower body fat and why losing it during weight loss may or may not be bad for your health, Travis and I decided to try our hand at the first of what we hope to be many Obesity Panacea Blogcasts. In essense, this blogcast is simply Travis and I talking over Skype about this area of research and specifically about my recently published paper.
We hope you enjoy our humble first attempt by using the audio player below! Or to subscribe to our podcast via itunes, click here.
