June 6th, 2014 marks the 70th anniversary of "D-Day," when U.S. troops landed at Normandy, France and entered World War 2.

We know losing weight is difficult. It requires changing your diet, and often means overcoming long-term bad eating habits. But bogus diets and phony studies make it even harder to find a diet, stick to it and succeed.

According to Fox News, a recent Gallup survey shows obesity rates continue to climb in the U.S. Currently the obesity rate for 2014 is 27.7%, up from 27.1% last year, again reaching record numbers.

Last month the Centers for Disease Control released a report showing improvement in the war on obesity among preschoolers. The CDC claimed obesity in kids ages 2-5 dropped from 14% to just over 8% in 2011-2012, a drop of 43%. According to Tom Frieden, CDC director, "This confirms that at least for kids, we can turn the tide and begin to reverse the obesity epidemic."

A new study from McGill University in Montreal, Canada indicates a connection between childhood obesity and parenting styles. The study identified two parenting styles - authoritarian vs. authoritative and compared associated obesity rates in children. "Authoritative" parents were defined as demanding but responsive to their children's emotions and issues. "Authoritarian" was defined as demanding, but not responsive (i.e., "tiger mom").

According to Medical News Today, we can now add ovarian cancer to the list of breast, bowel and other cancers caused by obesity.

On Feb 21, the New York Times ran an op-ed article entitled, "Should Obesity Be a Disease?" The article, by two professors at the University of Richmond, argues that classifying obesity as a disease has "important psychological costs."

Good News From Latest JAMA Study

A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows that obesity rates among young children (ages 2-5) decreased 43% since the last survey in 2004. This is more good news following the announcement that obesity rates dropped among low-income preschool children. Addressing childhood obesity is important because we have learned that obesity problems start sooner than we realized: a NEJM study showed overweight five-year-olds are four times as likely to become obese.
