Dieting, Crash diets, health

This article caught my eye:

How Crash Diets Harm Your Health

and then this blog:

Obsession with thinness

My favorite quote of the blog would have to be, “Writing an entire, ostensibly meaningful and important story on whether exercise can make you thin is analogous to wondering whether going to college can get you laid. Yes, but that’s not really the point.”

How true is that?  Going to the gym, exercising, the point is to get in shape.  Maybe that means losing weight, but more likely it means changing your percent density, so you have more muscle tissue and less adipose tissue.
