Javier Boleyn's 2-Step DUH! Diet: It must be true, it's peer-reviewed!

DUH! In the October issue of Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, Professor David Bassett and colleagues at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville report that American adults walk less than adults in countries with lower rates of obesity. According to USA Today, that respected fountain of knowledge:

"What to do? Take two steps, researchers advise:

•Add 3,000 to 4,000 steps a day (2,000 steps is a mile).

•Decrease calories to prevent weight gain as you grow older, an approach advocated by the International Obesity Task Force and America on the Move. James Hill, who is founder of America on the Move, co-wrote the study."

I believe, DUH! that this translates to Move More--Eat Less, the reverse of Javier Boleyn's 2-Step DUH! Diet. But this version is peer-reviewed and in a semi-prestigious journal, as indicated by its impact factor of 3.707.

Now, I've published some things that weren't exactly ground-breaking, but talk about a blinding flash of the obvious...
