Default Cardiologist Says Exercise Is Useless For Obesity

Cardiologist Tells Piers Morgan Exercise Is Useless For Obesity

Dr Aseem Malhotra

On Tuesday I was asked on Good Morning Britain to take part in a discussion on why Britain was suffering an obesity crisis? I started by stating that no one chooses to be fat and that the ultra-processed food environment was to blame. These nutritionally deficient products that now occupy 50% of total calories of the British Diet and are designed to hijack our appetites so we consume more have become unavoidable making it hard for people to exercise healthy choices.

Even our hospitals have become a branding opportunity for the junk food industry. Poor baseline health driven by poor diet is THE most important factor driving Covid 19 related deaths in the population.

Another myth that was mentioned on the show is that doing more exercise is part of the solution to combat obesity. This is blatantly false, and is part of the propaganda machine that has been used by junk food companies to deflect blame from their products to lack of exercise as the major cause of weight gain. Although exercise has many benefits for physical and mental health weight loss is NOT one of them. And if you have to exercise to keep your weight stable then your diet is wrong.
