What do the world's foremost obesity experts eat?

Well thanks to The Obesity Society, nothin' good.

When I wandered through the lunch offerings at this years Obesity Society's Annual Scientific Assembly in San Diego (one of the world's largest obesity conferences), what did I find?

Giant brownies, pretzels and full sugar soda - an interesting juxtaposition with the 2 abstracts and 2 complete symposia dedicated to sugared soda.

Sure could make one less hopeful about the world changing to de-normalize the ubiquitous provision of junk food when even the Obesity Society feels comfortable ordering it up for its members.
