SELF magazine and CPC Fellow Popkin create "What's Your Weight Fate?" quiz

Aug 25, 2009

The August 2009 issue of SELF magazine features a story about weight control and has an accompanying quiz called "What's Your Weight Fate?" The story cites research by Barry Popkin, CPC Fellow and Carla Steel Chamblee Distinguished Professor of Global Nutrition at UNC-Chapel Hill.

Here is an excerpt from the article:
It doesn't require a crystal ball to see your weight fate--just a couple of researchers and a whole lotta science! For the story, SELF worked with renowned obesity expert Barry Popkin, who wrote the book "The World Is Fat: The Fads, Trends, Policies, and Products That Are Fattening the Human Race. The idea is that genetics are only part of what determines your shape--your habits, lifestyle and other things that you control also play a huge role.
