Teenagers, Calories & Obesity

Not all weight loss experts accept Sutherland's idea that teenagers are burning too few calories, some outside observers think the report underestimates the damage also done by bad diet.

"I would take exception to that 1 percent (increase in calories)," said Dr. Reginald Washington, of Denver, who chairs the sports medicine and fitness committee of the American Academy of Pediatrics. "I think it's much higher than that."

Fast food calories are a big part of teens' eating patterns, and super-sizing is making the portions grow, Washington said.
"We are pretty sure they are eating too much, no matter what the data say," said Dr. Nancy Krebs of the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver, who chairs the pediatricians' group's committee on nutrition. "There is quite a consensus that it is due to a combination of factors."

"Our view is that it is a complex issue," said clinical nutritionist JoAnn Hattner of Stanford University, a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association. "It may well be their activity is down, and for some it may be a combination of increased caloric intake and decreased activity."

Accepting the conclusion that food is not a big part of the problem could take pressure off food companies to cut the calories they feed the nation, Hattner said.

Obesity and Weight Loss
Obesity is now the "trillion dollar disease". This reflects the social costs of obesity, in health and lost production, as well as the weight loss drug profits that might be made for any pharmaceutical company that finds a drug-cure for obesity. The search for viable weight loss medications continues, although pharmaceutical weight loss products still have significant side effects.
