maybe... for some people... but for me, my waist/middle is the last place I gain weight and the first place I lose weight. Even when my BMI was obese, my waist-height and waist-hip ratios were "excellent" because my body preferentially stores fat in my thighs, NOT my middle. Everyone is different.....

Nah...it's only on the hips until we take control of our exercise & eating habits. The choice is ours....isn't that great! We control what stays on our hips & what doesn't!

Go for it...make tomorrow the best day you ever had!

to me, that mantra goes against eating in moderation.

it's "all or nothing" and "black and white" thinking...

I think it's just a nice reminder to basically eat in moderation if there's any truth to it emoticon

to me, that phrase is eating disordered thinking.

I'm w/ Kylar on this one.

Also, when I lost my weight, the biggest area it went away from was my middle area. I still eat cake, and other fattening food. So, if that article is correct, I would be still fat around my middle area. I'm not.

I would like to see the actual study report. This seems horribly wrong in every way, shape, and form. Seems a lot like the broscience of "don't eat carbs at night, or it goes straight to fat!"

An interesting article I found, this will make me think twice about how big of piece of cake I eat even as a cheat on a special occasion ;)

Read if you'd like - it's about how quickly fat is stored around the waistline.
