Dr. Wallach starts the show discussing a recent magazine cover that show a baby hold some french fries. The picture has a caption that states "when I grow up I'm going weigh 300 pounds". Doc asserts the problem of weight gain and obesity in the U.S. is the fault of MDs and government for telling people the wrong things about weight gain. Contending the problem isn't one of excess but rather a deficiency problem.
